The artist´s response to the current socio-political climate in India. The film opens a window into hidden aspects of contemporary India: an absurd and chaotic world where the boundaries between fact and fiction are blurred; and where the undercurrents of caste, sexual, religious and political violence lurk beneath the surface. Short story and photo essay by Indian Magnum nominee Sohrab Hura.
