FILM PROJECT IN DEVELOPMENT
Following a devastating earthquake, Rudraawati (40), a feisty breast cancer survivor who lives in a make-shift shelter amidst the rubble, is torn between using her money to rebuild her house, which her family desperately needs, or re-building her breast to reclaim her womanhood and win back her estranged husband. While everyone in her family is busy preparing for the rituals to make Rudraawati’s daughter a Kumari (the Living Goddess as in Newari culture), Rudraawati decides without telling anyone to use the money to reclaim her womanhood. But the consequences of her decision catch up with her and she finds herself isolated, abandoned by the very people that she struggled so hard to hold together. She realises what is truly important to her. Now, she has to learn to take a stand and let go of false constraints. This might be her last chance to find hope and happiness again.
