When Ana, an American-raised Indian woman, returns to her ancestral town in central India to fulfill her dead father's wish to establish a library, her good intentions set off a storm in the village. Her initia- tive reveals in an absurd and satirical way that books can be considered dangerous by the dominant system in India. Ana, hoping to get out of this dead-end, chooses to run for the village council elections. She discovers more absurdities pertaining to India's political and social systems. "In India, while the current government has control over all means of expression and puts artists and political opponents behind bars, satire is the only means left to address the social and political affairs of the country. “Behind Veils” is inspired by many true stories from rural India and attempts to highlight this political absurdity and women’s status in society in a satirical way. It is also a story of the strength, will and resilience of women who manage to prevail against all odds." Praveen Morchhale
