Directed by Rohena Gera, this gentle Indian drama focuses on Ratna, a young woman from a poor rural village who works as a live-in maid to a wealthy young man, Ashwin. Both seem lost with dreams that have been thwarted. But this is not a story about the docile, downtrodden Asian woman, although Ratna, is quiet and guarded among the sophisticates of the Mumbai elite. Despite the careless disdain from Ashwin’s family and friends, she maintains her dignity and determination to make her own way in life. The film explores these two young people reaching through the stultifying barriers of caste or modern-day social class to the humanity and compassion they share. It is beautiful to watch.
