SYNOPSIS


A dead body of a migrant worker arrives in a remote village of Nepal. TATTINI, now a widow, plans to start a new life with her dead husband’s life insurance money, away from the shackles of the conservative society she lives in. But her lonely father-in-law, determined to stop her, claiming the money belongs to the village as per tradition and demands for darrkhana, their traditional hot iron ritual.

Mayat seorang pekerja migran tiba di sebuah desa terpencil di Nepal. Tattini, yang sekarang resmi menjanda, berencana untuk memulai hidup baru dengan uang asuransi dari kematian suaminya, jauh dari belenggu masyarakat konservatif di tempat ia tinggal. Namun, ayah mertuanya yang kesepian bersikeras untuk menghentikan Tattini, ia mengklaim bahwa uang tersebut merupakan hak desa sebagaimana tradisi dan permintaan darrkhana, ritual besi panas tradisional.
