Description

Dinesh is a young man trapped on the frontlines between the Sri Lankan army and the Tamil Tigers. Desensitised to the horror all around him, life has been pared back to the essentials; eat, sleep, survive. All this changes when he is approached one morning by an older man who asks him to marry his daughter Ganga, hoping that victorious soldiers will be less likely to harm a married woman. For a few brief hours, Dinesh and Ganga tentatively explore their new and unexpected connection, trying to understand themselves and each other, until the war once more closes over them.
