Winner of Grolsch People’s Choice Award (1st Runner Up) at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival and The Audience Choice Award at Rome Film Festival 2015, this is an empowering film about female friendship, love and sisterly solidarity set in Goa, India.

When a successful but frustrated photographer, a wannabe Bollywood actress, a high-flying workaholic executive and mother, a struggling musician, a prudish princess and a housekeeper with a dark secret all gather together in a quaint Portuguese villa in Goa on the eve of the host’s wedding, no subject is off limits for this spirited group of women. Love, sex, careers, marriage, friendship, sexism and the benefits of a super hot next-door neighbor are all up for debate. But it is ultimately tragedy and the power of unity in the face of institutional misogyny that binds these women together.
