When Dunya Khair writes a controversial article in the newspaper challenging the status quo in her country, the response - ranging from adulation to death threats - is swift.
Faced with the dissolution of familial ties and the prospective collapse of her marriage, alongside a looming nervous breakdown, Dunya's consequent actions exemplify both the strength and frailty of the human spirit.
When the Haboob Sings paints a poignant picture of a woman whose unshakeable resolve to preserve her authenticity costs her more than she ever imagined.
