My film explores the emotional state of a woman’s mind: her relationship with self, her relationship with the other woman, her relationship with the divine, her relationship with Mother Earth, her relationship with humanity. Her emotional state of mind and her relationship with the other person could have many meanings. I leave the film open to interpretation for everyone.

Woman and Self
Woman and Woman
Indian: Muslim and Hindu
Happiness and Sorrow
Mother and Daughter
Human and Divine
Human and Mother Earth
Human and Nature.

For me, personally, I see the message of the story as the split of a woman and her inner self: her inner self which comes out as a pure, innocent, uncorrupted being and when the inner self witnesses the authentic emotional state of a human filled with hate, genocide, racism, murder, violence, the inner being is shocked and disturbed and turns away from the woman.

My film was inspired by one of my favorite films, Persona (1966), a Swedish film by Ingmar Bergman.
