Synopsis

A half-alien half-human young woman, living in a rural village in Sri Lanka, with the help of two friends, tries to save their village from a multinational environment release corporation, while struggling to make up her mind about returning to the planet of her origin.

Director Sujeewa Priyalali’s eco-thriller with its sci-fi elements, a certain resemblance to the aesthetics of the 1980s’ trash cinema, and the crazy styling so characteristic of India and South East Asia is a film which places great importance on appreciating nature. The film premiered in its homeland last summer.
