Synopsis

In the vast Mumbai metropolis, hybrid images flash by as if they were free jazz. Two protagonists, whose lives interconnect, serve as our guides : the eccentric singer Suman who recounts the plight of Indian women through punk rock, slam poetry and jazz ; and the transman Khush, a rickshaw driver who dreams of transforming his female body into a muscular Bollywood-style one. The search for identity, happiness and love, Natasha Mendonca's contemporary portrait of male-female relationships and alternative lifestyles in India is unique, strange, original and particularly provocative. A real discovery !
