    Brief synopsis

    Karthik, a young liberal Indian student living in the West suddenly returns to India for a traditionally arranged marriage. In search of a reason, we follow him to India and meet his bride and family. What does love have to do with it? The film explores encodings and narratives of love. Parallels between the Indian way and our own culture (and the universal feelings underlying them) slowly become apparent.
