After his mother was killed by bandits, nine-year-old Ishvaku moves to live with her family in the Chambal ravines, whose closed terrains seemed to have locked its communities in mythic time. Holding onto his mother’s tale of the tragic hero Ashwatthama – an immortal who is eternally cursed with the pain of his wounds – the young boy begins to have strange encounters in the village. Singh’s second feature, redolent of Victor Erice’s cinema, weaves the mythical and the real in a child’s coming-of-age drama.
