Synopsis

Kaju, a 21-year-old Indian American woman, returns to India to visit her family, only to stumble upon secrets and lies from her past. A horrifying genocide that took place 20 years ago turns out to hold the key to her mysterious origins.

MUBI's take

Shonali Bose’s striking directorial debut is a perceptive enquiry into India’s turbulent communal history and the emotional aftermath of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots. Premiering at Berlinale, this taut drama movingly traces an emigrant’s search for her roots, marked by a profound struggle for identity.
