While gay rights and marriage equality has been embraced by most countries, a small town in Southern India lives within a cocoon of traditions and social morality. In such a milieu when a young gay man Kartik, comes out to his mother Vasudha, her entire world comes crashing down. She has no one to turn to dispel her fears and doubts, to understand her loving son's truth. Moreover as a woman, trapped within a patriarchal conservative society, her biggest challenge is to deal with her dogmatic husband Damodar, and the conservative society around her. 'Evening Shadows (Surmaee Shaam)' is a universal story about a mother-son bonding and its emotional strength to withstand the ravages of time and harsh realities.
The movie will be followed by a panel moderated by Trikone’s own Sal Salam!
