The Bargain from the Bazaar describes the current situation in Pakistan. Centred on Awais Reza, an ex-soldier turned merchant, who works at the famous Anarkali bazaar with his beloved wife and 3 sons. Through each son’s personality, the story shows different sides in the clash between liberal ideology and radical fundamentalism. It further displays that honesty and goodness ultimately prevails over evil.
