White Rainbow Details


When tragedy befalls a privileged Indian wife as she suddenly loses both her husband and unborn child, her pilgrimage to Vrindavan finds her seeking emotional solace in her friendship with three other tragic widows in director Dharan Mandrayar's thoughtful meditation on the role of the social stigma attached to widowhood in Indian society. Priya's husband has been killed in a sudden and unexpected tragedy, and upon receiving the horrific news, she soon miscarries. Suddenly rejected from society and thrust into an unfamiliar world in which the lack of a husband makes one invisible to the masses, Priya sets out on the road to Vrindavan and quickly makes the acquaintance of elder street-smart widow Roop, who has been rejected by her children; kindly Mala, who has been disfigured by her vengeful mother-in-law; and fragile 15-year-old widow and prostitute Deepti. Now, as the tragic quartet takes their fates into their own hands and refuses to accept a grim future of poverty and servitude, Priya, Roop, Mala, and Deepti will discover together that life is truly what one makes of it. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
