The Silence


Late at night on a local train in Mumbai, young Chini witnesses an incident that forces her to face up to demons from her past. Based on a true story, the narrative revolves around a little girl growing up in poverty with her father in a rural area. When he’s unable to manage caring for her himself, he sends Chini to her uncle in a nearby town, where life-changing events occur. Blending past and present and with forceful drama, the film tackles crucial, taboo topics, tracing the recurring question of responsibility – or silence.
