SYNOPSIS
After serving eight years in jail, Siva is released back into a world outside bars. He has to grapple with his minority status and the fractures he created within his family. With a mother who rejected him, and a society that offers no respite, Siva roams the streets as a vagabond. He befriends Chen Chen, a Chinese prostitute who connects with him through their shared desperation. When Siva discovers a terrible truth, he plunges into a liminal zone between death and redemption.
