In Maharashtra, India we watch a sweet young woman scrupulously obey her family, submitting to being appraised as a suitable match for a local son. The male relatives of the potential match question her before retiring to discuss her worthiness. These patriarchal traditions override both her sensitivities and her ambition to study for the civil service and, despite seeming cold, are clearly the norm in the community. Warmed by the vibrant colors of India, we cheer on this spirited young woman who yearns to determine her own future.
