Working as a mourner for hire at village funerals to supplement her meager income, a single mother in Rajasthan faces an impossible dilemma when the village elders demand repayment of their loan.
Formidably performed by the talented Tannishtha Chatterjee (PARCHED, ISLAND CITY) and evocatively photographed amidst a vast arid landscape, this haunting character study rises into a powerful outcry against a patriarchal society’s deep-rooted system of legitimized abuse.
