Synopsis by Augustine Chay
Directors Tony Stopperan and Nisha Sabharwal’s historical drama is based on the latter’s unpublished novel of the same name. Starring Salena Qureshi, Cas Anvar, Dominic Rains, and Anna George, its intergenerational narrative begins to unfold in 1930s British India. A young Indian woman from a privileged background finds the courage and conviction to break free from an imminent arranged marriage – and from the machinations of her powerful and charismatic guru.
