Joyland (ENG SUBS)
Joyland is the oldest amusement park in Lahore, the capital of Pakistan’s Punjab province. It is a place where people like Haider and his pregnant wife Mumtaz forget all their worries. She lives daily with the pressure that the patriarchal society of Pakistan puts on her – she has to give birth to a son – and he walks around with a big secret. Haider secretly works as a background dancer for Biba, a trans woman who performs in an exotic dance club. When he falls in love with her, a culture clash erupts that unsettles his conservative environment.
