Papori

PAPORI, a young married woman, lives in a village with her school teacher husband Binod and her nine year old daughter Deepa. Content to be cushioned within the four walls of a comfortable home, she is untouched by increasingly tense political atmosphere outside her very door. Her comfortable security is unexpectedly uprooted when first her daughter dies of paralysis after a bad fall and her husband is implicated in the murder of a minor political figure and evidence used against him in court.
