Description:
  The movie chronicles the life of Khadeeja, a married Muslim woman confined within the four walls of the household, forced to conceal her desires in the name of religious and societal norms. When fate brings her to an abandoned life, she chooses a different way of financially and sexually liberating herself- to be a sex worker; soon to realize that her soul is still dissatisfied. Finding a new way of hope, she decides to give back to the forces that pushed her to live an orphaned life of humiliation and misery.

Shot in various regions spread across Kerala and Tamil Nadu, the movie captures the essence of life from a conservative, religious and rural background. While these places are representative of areas where such stories might still exist, the movie does not push the audience to see it as a regular event in these places.

“The film will reflect some contemporary events which we are very familiar with,” says Sajin, who also scripted the film and worked on its sound design. “The story is told through the point of view of Kani’s character Khadeeja. Terrorism is one of its key themes. What would a mother and daughter do when they are faced with a difficult, scandalous situation? That’s the crux of the story.”
