The Ground Beneath Their Feet from Nausheen Dadabhoy on Vimeo.

"The Ground Beneath Their Feet" follows two women, Ruqiya and Khalida, who are paralyzed by injuries sustained because of damage caused by a powerful earthquake. Their journey toward recovery shows a Pakistani-Muslim family dealing with physical, mental, and emotional crises. In a culture where women are homemakers and caretakers, what will the future hold for these women whose identities are potentially destroyed, and will a conservative society allow them to find their place?
