Sinopsis

Otac nasilnik i alkoholičar odvlači sina do udaljenog sela kako bi doveo natrag suprugu koju je otjerao. Nakon neugodnog susreta, povratak doma kroz pustopoljine Tamil Nadu natopljen je znojem i prašinom spaljene zemlje i ljudskih osjećaja pod paklenim suncem.

A hot-tempered alcoholic father drags his reticent son to a distant village to fetch back his wife whom he had chased away. But when the encounter turns ugly, the journey home through unforgiving Tamil Nadu barrens is fraught with the sweat and smudge of the deserted terrain where the land and human emotions lay brazenly palpable in the scorching heat.

Vinothraj P S

Filmaš podrijetlom iz grada Madurai, savezna država Tamil Nadu, Indija. Zbog siromaštva napušta školovanje u 4. razredu i već u osmoj godini života počinje raditi u tekstilnoj tvornici u Tiruppuru, kako bi obitelji olakšao život. S 19 godina nalazi posao u trgovini DVD-a u Chennaiju, i tijekom godina upoznaje nekolicinu ljudi iz tamilske filmske branše. Postaje pomoćnik tamilskog filmskog redatelja A. Sarkunama, s kojim surađuje tijekom četiri godine na dva filmska projekta. Vinothrajev redateljski prvijenac ‘Koozhangal’ (Obluci) inspiriran je događajima iz života samog redatelja.
