Khilaf was initiated when the recent case of a man marrying an 11 years old child that has caused an uproar and caught our attention. A question of morality arise as we are trying to understand how can such a person in the right mind, to have the idea of taking a hand in marriage with an underage girl?

The final year students of Cinematic Arts, Multimedia University delve into these issues and by all mean and do what they do best; making a short film. Khilaf is a story of a single father who has to question his morality and making the decision whether to marry off his daughter at her early age; with her own rapist.

Khilaf is not just a mere short film, but also trying to raise awareness on this matter and shed some light upon this issue.”
