Whilst in Mumbai on a short business trip, confident young hotshot Jai hooks up with his old friend Sahil for a jaunt through the Western Ghats. Leaving his boyfriend behind, Sahil attempts to forget his troubles. Jai, on the other hand, is out to cut loose and have some fun. Over the course of the next 48 hours, the pair re-connect and gradually reveal a complicated history, raising some painful truths in the process. Shot in complete secrecy in a country where homosexuality is still punishable by law, Sudhanshu ‘Suds’ Saria’s debut film is a bold and important film – as politically radical as it is emotionally raw. That it exists at all is something to celebrate, but that it is such a confident, compelling and emotionally rich piece of work is nothing short of extraordinary.

The introduction/Q&A will be BSL interpreted on 21 March.
