After his memorable debut, Sankara (IFFR 2007), and second film, Karma (IFFR 2011), Sri Lankan director Prasanna Jayakody remains in the world of the metaphysical, exploring this time the exciting confrontation of two worlds - one essentially marked by emotional bonds and purity and the other by materialistic values and doubtful social norms.
Abasiri’s wife Suddhi abandoned him and the village a long time ago. Now, Abasiri and his young friend Mani are summoned to identify a woman who got raped and murdered in the city. Hiding his personal distress after the shocking discovery that it’s his own wife, Abasiri embarks on a strange journey with a coffin heading through captivatingly beautiful hill stations towards the village where embarrassing rumours of Suddhi’s demise are already spreading. In the last part of this poetic travelogue, dead Suddhi confronts the villagers with their own hypocrisy and shortcomings.
