Meera (20), a lonely pregnant woman is caught in a maze of desires and disappointments. Devki (45), a widow confined to a wheelchair demands respect for her pigeon. Durga (60), a religious fanatic begins to experience delusions. When mundane lives of these three women intertwine in a lonely chawl in India, we encounter an existential underworld of raw impulses, desires and fears in this human wilderness with no respite and no resolution. Meera ist zwanzig Jahre alt, schwanger und einsam, und gefangen in einem Labyrinth aus Bedürfnissen und Enttäuschungen. Devki, 45, verwitwet und an den Rollstuhl gefesselt, verlangt nach Respekt für ihre Taube. Durga, 60, eine religiöse Fanatikerin, bekommt langsam Wahnvorstellungen.
