Three teenage best friends in rural Assam, northeast India, are forging their distinct personalities, but as the girls secretly meet boys, they must deal with the reality of outmoded customs that threaten their very lives. Rima Das made a global splash with 2017’s Village Rockstars, and Bulbul Can Sing continues to demonstrate her humane, world-class talent, winning plaudits in Berlin, Dublin, Singapore and Mumbai.
