Film Series: Masaan (India, 2015)

W.T. Young Library Alumni Gallery

Four lives intersect along the Ganges: a low caste boy hopelessly in love, a daughter ridden with guilt of a sexual encounter ending in a tragedy, a hapless father with fading morality, and a spirited child yearning for a family, long to escape the moral constructs of a small town. 

Two stories-one involving a father-daughter tormented by the orthodox architecture of a small town, another following the musings of a young couple from different castes, meander along the shores of the Ganges, as the river of life touches them in different ways, destined to coalesce at the Sangam.
