“Our Small Lives” is etched on the map of patriarchy and male dominance, still very much a part of today’s Pakistan. Compromise and acceptance fill the vacuum created by lovelessness. When Sara finally finds love, will she be able to pay the price for it? Can she finally live life on her own terms or will she sacrifice her happiness for family once again? The themes of love and loss are at crossroads with each other in this saga of a match made for convenience but suffered out of duty and respect for family. Set in Cambridge, Massachusetts with roots in Lahore, Pakistan, Sara’s story is a tale woven by duty and sacrifice, love and appreciation. When life gives a second chance, why should Sara not take it? It is never too late to love , is it, as we go through Our Small Lives?
