CGiii Comment

When hearts and minds change, when prejudice is experienced and dished out.

The message is clear...prejudgment is a dangerous thing.

A powerful film.

The(ir) Blurb...

People who can't be molded into the stereotypes that society has set, often find it difficult to make a place for themselves in the same society. Hailing from a small town in India, Artika believes herself to be modern, liberal and most importantly, independent. Not the one who shies away from speaking her mind. She struggles to find a place to stay in Mumbai, overcoming the cliched remarks of being a 'single working girl living alone'. However, an unprecedented encounter with a transgender sex worker opposite to her house, questions her beliefs. Will she now fall into the same societal prejudices that she has been fighting against?
