SYNOPSIS

Two arid hamlets separated by a distance of 13 kilometers from the down South of Tamil Nadu unfurl a drama witnessed by the sun. An alcoholic wife beater embarks on a journey, dragging his young son along to fetch back his wife whom he had chased away. The land and human emotions lay brazenly palpable in the scorching heat. This journey is fraught with the sweat and smudge of the common folk, crawling critters and the deserted terrain.

Vinothraj P S

Vinothraj P S is a filmmaker hailing from Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India. He dropped out of school when he was in class IV owing to poverty. To overcome the financial difficulties at home, he opted to become a child labourer at an early age of 8 and worked in a textile factory in Tiruppur until he turned 19. To eke out a living, he then sold DVDs at a roadside shop in Chennai. During this time, he got introduced to a few people from the Tamil film Industry and eventually joined as an assistant director to Sargunam, a Tamil filmmaker. He worked with him for almost four years on two film projects. He then worked as an assistant director for ‘Manal Magudi’, a postmodernistic theatre troupe established by Muruga Boopathy in Kovilpatti, Tamil Nadu. He utilised his time during this venture to shoot a few short films. He shot his debut feature Pebbles, which is inspired by his personal life.
