Parched

Parched

Deep in the deserts of Northern India, three women thirst for more than just a good source of water. On nearly every level, these women lack dignity and respect from the longtime patriarchal traditions of their rural community. A lush fable, at once tethered to a dusty, socially retrograde reality while embracing a vision of a future still under construction.
