February, 2011. In a small village of West Bengal – Swapna and Shucheta – two young women in love with each other – took their own lives, leaving a letter claiming love, life, recognition… a letter challenging violence, hate, invisibilisation.
With her inspired, imaginative retelling of a real incident, Debalina Majumder takes an incisive look at the wrath faced by anyone (especially lovers) going against what society considers the norm. This perceptive short drama compels you to contemplate the unjust realities of the world.
