IMFF2017: WHITE SUN
Indie Meme presents WHITE SUN
89 minutes / Nepali with English subtitles
Director:DEEPAK  RAUNIYAR

Preceded by a short film THE ROBE



When his father dies, former anti-regime partisan Chandra must travel to his remote mountain village after nearly a decade away. Little Pooja is anxiously awaiting to see the man she thinks is her father for the first time. But shes confused when Chandra arrives with Badri, a young street orphan rumored to be his son. She tries to calm her mother Durga, the old man's caretaker, after the angry woman is excluded from preparing the body for funeral rites because tradition does not allow women to participate.

Chandras arrival is more awkward than he expected due to a complication with removing his  fathers body from home. He and Durga struggle with an unspoken pain that prevents any reconciliation. To make matters  worse,  Chandra must face his brother Suraj, who was on the opposing side during the civil war.

The two brothers  cannot put aside political feelings while carrying their fathers  body down the steep mountain path to the river for cremation. Suraj storms off in a rage, leaving Chandra with no other men strong enough to help. Under pressure from the village elders, Chandra must seek help from outside the village to obey the rigid caste and discriminatory gender traditions he fought to eliminate during the war.

Young children Pooja and Badri tag along as Chandra search- es for a solution in  neighboring villages. The unlikely trio search for help among the police, guests at a local wedding, and rebel guerrillas.
