The film follows the experience of my grandma in her fifty-year long marriage to my grandfather which reflects the patriarchal tendencies of Indian society then and till this day. The subtle behaviours expected by society which invoke women to be submissive and conform to gender stereotypes is what I wished to capture. Ultimately this translates to the violence perpetrated against women which is often justified by the same rhetoric - women who do not conform provoke violence and need to "taught their place."
