Being a teacher in the underprivileged communities of Pakistan can bring unexpected challenges.

‘Brick in Each Hand’ is the story of Farzana Sial, a heroic teacher, for whom no challenge is insurmountable when it comes to ensuring a brighter future for her students. Driven by her commitment to teaching and her passion for her students, she successfully took on a landlord bent on shutting down her school.

The film showcases how one woman’s struggles and perseverance gradually transformed the attitude of an entire community towards education. Farzana is now a principal at a local school in Khairpur.
