Heera, a clinical
psychologist, pursues meaning, coherence and integrity. In unearthing memories
of her childhood and adolescence, she takes us to the bleakest corners of her
family life. She lets us peer into the incongruences of an insular society, and
witness how they can force a creator into servitude. Follies, superstition,
tradition and unquestioned beliefs clog her world, and the only means of escape
is to destroy and recreate.
