SYNOPSIS

In a dystopian world where all women are endangered, two brothers help a girl reach a safe haven for all females.

Director Statement:

With this film, I wanted to make something meaningful and socially relevant in this era, but with my own style and sense of storytelling. The story is complex and layered but the purpose is simple, to draw a parallel with today’s world in its own way. The film is essentially a political allegory set in a dystopian world with socially lost characters. The creatures who have taken over the world are the authorities with conservative mindsets. The two brothers represent the two sides of man, the good and the bad. Finally, the girls represent every girl in this world today as according to the story there’s a rarity of girls who can speak and the world can only change if a girl who can speak can reach ‘The Light’. This draws a straight parallel from today’s world as there’s only change when a girl speaks up about injustice against her which puts her in the spotlight and makes her a torchbearer for change in the system. Therefore, the themes explored in this story are good vs evil, alienation and sacrifice.
