Trace a teenaged rape victim’s five-year odyssey through Pakistan’s flawed justice system. 

In Pakistan, women and girls who allege rape are often more strongly condemned than their alleged rapists. Some are even killed by their own families. For this unforgettable documentary, filmmakers Habiba Nosheen and Hilke Schellmann spent years tracing one alleged rape victim's odyssey through Pakistan’s flawed justice system — as well as her alleged rapists’ quest to clear their names. FRONTLINE: Outlawed in Pakistan airs Wednesday, March 4, 2015 at 9 p.m. on WXXI World.
