Description: Set in present day rural Western India, "Dohaa (Dark Waters)" is the story of physical lust and its horrific consequences for two tender lives. Bhiki, a single mother of three, is the mistress of the macho Vishnu and survives by selling fritters under his abusive protection. Kamli, Bhiki's eldest daughter, is not academically inclined but insists on attending school as it is the only escape from her impoverished surroundings. On the verge of puberty, Kamli is shunned by her classmates and picked on by the teacher. While the village grocer and class bully lust for her, Kamli develops tender feelings for the handsome, intelligent and kind Ajay, who arrives from Mumbai and joins her class. Confused by Bhiki's constant pressure to ensnare Ajay into a physical relationship, Kamli tries to seduce him awkwardly. Watching Ajay and Kamli in the act, Bhiki offers herself forcibly to Ajay. Will the swirling Dark Waters of poverty and animalistic lust surrounding Kamli destroy her innocence, her capacity to love tenderly and devour her or will she survive to grow stronger?
