PARCHED is an inspirational drama about women set in the heart of parched rural landscape of Gujarat, India. It traces the bittersweet tale of four ordinary women: traditional Rani, a young widow; lively Lajjo, who lives in an abusive marriage; outcast Bijli, a dancer and prostitute who becomes friends with Rani and Lajjo; and Janaki, a young teenager in a miserable arranged marriage to Rani’s son Gulab.

We see the friends unapologetically talk about men, sex and life as they struggle with their individual boundaries and their inner demons. Gradually, they begin question the century-old traditions that have kept them locked in servitude. One fateful night, the women come together and take a bold step that will change the trajectory of their lives. HINDI WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES.

Shot by Academy Award-winning cinematographer, Russell Carpenter (TITANIC).
