The Wait

Winner > Best First Time Short Film
‘The Wait’ unravels the fragile interconnections that link lives and design people’s destinies. Set in idyllic rural Assam of the 90s, when a volatile secessionist movement was at its peak; the film tells the story of two ordinary young people, Rajen and Kunjo. Rajen and Kunjo have known each other for years and share a special bond. They are soulmates but they don’t know it yet. Rajen’s older brother Khogen joins the rebel movement much to the sorrow of his grandmother who always pines for him.
As the film progresses we get a peep into the simple sources of joy in the village. Tragedy strikes when Khogen kills one of his comrades steals some money from the rebel group and his comrades come looking for him.
