Synopsis

Turup, set in Bhopal, the film tells the story of three women, in the backdrop of growing right wing fundamentalism. As the boundaries of religion, caste, class, gender become clearer and more visible, lives intersect and engage, throwing open opportunities to subvert and transcend these barriers. As people look for answers they also encounter new questions. A chess game which is always being played on a platform by the road becomes the metaphorical background to the playing out of these negotiations.
