Q&A with director Amrita Pradhan after the screening.
Reeta, a young stand-up comedian, feels the heat. As she edges closer to the ominous age of 3-0, she feels the ever-mounting pressure to fall in love, get married, and settle down. Her growing doubts and conservative Indian family are certainly not helping the situation. When she meets lonely funeral home employee Juliun, her happy ending finally feels imminent... so why isn’t she happy? A whimsical dramatic-comedy about trying to fix something that may have been broken all along.
