The play was written and directed by Aftab Anwar, and senior artists Ehsan Qureshi, Salman Sunny, Hameed Baber, Imran Rushdi, Ismail Bashir, Amin Shahzada, Rana Kashif and Sapna Shah acted in leading roles.
The story revolves around a journalist who has come to Pakistan from America to write a book on a successful Pakistani.
He meets various Pakistanis, from civil servants, students, labourers, landlords, drug addicts, schoolteachers, industrialists, farmers and workers of the Pakistan Movement.
All the characters seem to portray the negative impact of society, like social injustice and lack of moral values. The journalist is disappointed over the stories he hears but the tale of a farmer attracts the writer’s attention.
RAC Resident Director Waqar Ahmad, in his address, was of the view that everybody must pledge to work sincerely for the country’s betterment.
