ONAATAH - of the earth


What do you do when life reaches a dead end? Giving up is an option, but certainly not the only or the best option. Onaatah, wounded from inside and by the stereotypes of society realizes the same too. She refuses to be a loser but doesn’t know how to pick up the pieces of a broken life. When the events of one fateful night leave her scarred and the courts and society keep dragging her hurt for years; she is almost broken.
As suggested by her father earlier, Onaatah ponders on taking a break and going to her uncle’s remote village. Her decision to come to her uncle’s village takes her to another world. He and his wife are a constant support to Onaatah and she is absorbed in their day to day lives. Adding to the flavour of the film is the rich terrain of Khasi hills. The freshness of it all would be a treat for the viewers.
In her Uncle’s village is the slightly weird and naive Duh. A young man, he does almost everything that comes his way for a living. Onaatah’s perspective about life changes when she gets introduced to the other characters of the village. The rustic simplicity makes Onaatah look at life differently.

This is another world, a world very different from that of Onaatah’s. Would Onaatah be able to forget her past and embrace another life? What lies in her past that has rattled her so much? Does the friendship that Duh has to offer to her blossom to something more? Or are Duh’s affections just one sided?
