In Khan’s Factory Girl, Yasmin embodies the role of Hiyam, a
young factory worker, lives in a lower-middle-class neighborhood, along with her co-workers. She is clearly under the spell of Salah, the factory's new supervisor, who has expressed his admiration for her. She believes love can transcend the class differences between them.However, when a pregnancy test is discovered in the factory premises, her immediate family and close friends accuse her of sinning. Hiyamdecides not to defend herself and pays an enormous price in a society that fails to accept independent women.
