Alif is the story of a Muslim boy torn between tradition and evolution, the cliquishness of his own people and prejudice from the majority community.The film kicks off in Varanasi where we discover that little Ali's dad had, decades earlier, forced his sister to go to Pakistan, fearing for her safety during the post-Partition riots.
