Behind the Wheel serves as an inquiry into the moral and emotional turmoil of Nigora, an Uzbek woman whose traditional life of being a housewife is interrupted.

After her migrant husband fails to send back enough money and she finds out he has been having an affair, Nigora defies prevailing gender norms and sets to work fixing car tyres.

Part of our Compass strand of documentaries from around the world.
