While There Is Light

Tariq Mehmood

On bail for charges of suspected terrorism, Saleem decides he must travel back to Pakistan to visit his ailing mother. It is not a trip home exactly because home is a hard concept for a man who was exiled as a boy to England. Saleem’s story moves between high comedy and tragedy.
