A place of her own.

Bengali director Indrasis Acharya has quickly achieved a major position in Indian art cinema with his films winning multiple prizes at festivals throughout the region. This delicate and sensitive new work tells of a young woman, Deepa, as she moves away from a drunken, abusive father to a more sympathetic environment with her uncle and aunt in rural Jharkhand. She decides to go back to her roots, to the comfort of solitude while searching for her own identity. Her search for peace, and ultimately for herself, will prove long and elusive. As the director notes, “It's a story of belief in love without any inhibition and boundary of a modern woman with the help of natural beauty around her and the house she lives in.”
