CGiii Comment

Oooh this could have been so much better...to look at, if the director had chosen a more cinematic aspect!

But...a powerful little film that will make you seethe...it leaves you wondering what would happen if the shoes were on the other feet!

Wow!

The(ir) Blurb...

This film is about a young closeted lesbian Tara, who juggles conflicting identities as she is caught embracing her attraction towards the woman who has helped raise her. Set in New Delhi, this 12 minute narrative is as much as coming of age as it is a commentary on the savage social and class lines that divide contemporary India today.
