Based in the heart of Lahore, the story takes place in a house full of daughters, with vibrancy of life, yet restrictions on blooming. It questions the worth of a human being, may it be a woman or a person born with a birth defect. It questions the authority of reproducing human beings into this world without taking responsibility of acknowledging their worth. Bol takes you through a journey into the life of this family experiencing their troubles, sufferings, resolves and high points. As family members take decision to solve their problems they step into deeper troubles. The complexity of their circumstances becomes a struggle of life and death.

Though not the usual type of film I watch as it was somewhat slow paced. But that was required, for the questions it raises about the sanctity of life, of morality, and whether we have a role in choosing one life over another were portrayed in such a powerful manner. But most importantly of all, it shows that no matter how desolate a place of ruin may seem, hope, love and life still bloom in such harsh places.
