Humaira: The Dream Catcher celebrates the achievements of Humaira Bachal, an activist from Karachi who fights for girls’ education. Working out of Muwach Goth, Humaira has singlehandedly educated over 1200 students at the nominal fee of 1 rupee per day. The film serves as a tribute to her personal struggles and shares her vision for the future of her organization, The Dream Foundation Trust.
