New Directors Competition
Studying in a colonial-era boarding school in the Himalayan mountains, Jaivardhana is an insolent and mischievous sixteen-year-old who finds it hard to balance his world within the rigid and mundane structures of school, and his newfound attraction towards another student, Tarini. As the tale unfolds, we begin to realize their roles as timeless lovers in a mythical tale, meeting in the present day after several centuries of longing, and leading up to the death of Tarini in this life as well. As the whole universe conspires to break the ancient curse, this tale of eternal love can only end when Jaivardhana travels to the land of death itself. The myth and reality merges, giving birth to something new, where we witness the dream of a boy, merging with the cosmic dream.
