Dir. Shuchi Talati

Mira is a star student at a strict boarding school who falls in love with a charming new classmate. As the two start spending more time together, Mira’s mother, herself a bit repressed and jealous of the warm friendship the two have, also falls for the boy’s charisma.

Mira isn’t just a good student–she’s a model student, acing her classes but also following the rules to the T. She’s so impressive that the school makes her the first female Head Prefect, imposing order on her classmates. Enter Sri, a young man recently transferred from Hong Kong who, much to her own surprise, awakens her suppressed desires. What’s even more surprising is that Anila, Mira’s mother, is also charmed by this young man’s attention and manners. Shuchi Talati’s coming-of-age film is a frank and heartwarming story exploring female sexuality and vulnerability.
