Maya tells the story of a young woman in Pakistan, who rediscovers her traumatic childhood through the grips of jinn (demonic) possession. The film is based on true events. Writer and director K/XI explains, “Maya focuses on themes including cultural and social issues, religion, mental health and the supernatural. It also has a strong focus on the representation of women in Pakistan.”
