Shamim Sarif is a world renowned and award winning writer/director who has gifted her readers and audience with a number of wonderful lesbian romance books and films. She debuted with the book named The World Unseen which is a master piece in itself. The story of this book was later on adapted for screen and was released by the same name.
The world unseen is a story about two women who are of completely opposite natures, but start getting attracted towards each other, against the customs and laws of the society in which they live. The story is set during the 1950s in the apartheid society of South Africa.
The main characters of the story are Miriam and Amina. Miriam is a typical Indian woman who has devoted her life for the upbringing of her children and in the service of her husband. She is a shy but hard working wife of a narrow minded and frustrated husband. Although Miriam is an intelligent woman, she never even assumed that she is capable of making her own choices in life.
The other main character in the story is of Amina who is not at all like Miriam. Although she belongs to the conventional Indian community based in South Africa, she likes to live her life as she wishes and nothing could stop her from doing what she wants to do. She runs her own cafe, which she has jointly opened with a colored man named Jacob.
As the story proceeds, both these women meet each other and everything around them starts to change. Although Miriam and Amina are of different natures, yet they get attracted towards each other and their worlds start turning upside down. The writer has beautifully described each and every character and situation of the story and has added a true life to it.
