A Muslim American teenager struggles to reconcile desire with family obligations. Hala is a proof-of-concept for a feature-length film that explores coming-of-age as a Muslim American. From Yasmeen Gharnit's review of Hala on NYLON.com: "The new short film, written and directed by Minhal Baig, follows a 16-year-old Muslim teenager Hala (Tess Granfield) as she attempts to explore her sexuality and identity while growing up in a conservative, religious household. The film starkly opens as we see Hala masturbate, only to be interrupted by her mother asking why she missed suhoor, a pre-dawn meal eaten while fasting during Ramadan. Then, while skateboarding at a park, she meets Jesse (Jasper Newman), and the two share an immediate connection. While she embarks on a relationship with him, she sees her parents’ relationship disintegrate as they argue about religious guidelines and the way they raise Hala. Eventually, it becomes impossible for Hala to exist between her two separate “lives.” In 14 minutes, the film somehow captures more than the aforementioned feature films do in their entirety."

“Behind the Schoolbag” is a story about self-salvation. Having suffered from a miserable childhood, Shaun couldn’t help but question his own value. Human relationship has always been Shaun’s barrier, sometimes, he wishes he could stay alone, but in reality, Shaun has to re-enter the society. Staying in his own comfort zone, Shaun can do nothing but lock up his heart and distant himself from others. All the stress and pressure in modern life is driving people insane. We have to learn how to sooth our own emotions so as to survive. We can do nothing but meditate and reflect upon ourselves. We can observe the truth and the essence wisely and feel the presence of now and start living.
