Description

Set in 1938 Colonial India against Mahatma Gandhi's rise to power, the story begins when eight-year-old Chuyia, a child bride, is widowed and sent to a home where Hindu widows must live in penitence. Chuyia’s feisty persona and naïve attitude represents a new generation and the possibility of changing attitudes. Although the Holy Hindu scriptures restrict all the widows, including young Chuyia, from remarrying, seeds of change have been planted in India. Deepha Mehta’s third film in a trilogy, which started with Fire and Earth, once again boldly challenges India’s traditions and biases.
