The article discusses how small individual choices often defy the trend of collective choices and influence social change. The author refers to Sabiha Sumar's film "Silent Waters" to study the exercise of choice by the various protagonists under conditions of social turmoil. The film was used as part of pedagogy to initiate a discussion on gender issues and to examine the views of young adults on issues such as individual choices and social change.
