A woman of great knowledge and virtue sets aside the prominent years of her life to help the underprivileged living in impermanent settlements of Karachi, Pakistan. The devastating reality is that she was murdered for her noteworthy initiative. By mapping with the residents, she helped them gain land title, as she proved their case to the city and government officials.
