What is it like to fight a rape case in Pakistan? In "Outlawed in Pakistan," filmmakers Habiba Nosheen and Hilke Schellmann spent nearly four years probing the case of Kainat Soomro, who says she was gang raped by four men when she was just 13-years-old. Here, they discuss Kainat's story and the challenges of making a film about Pakistan's flawed justice system.
