Aaba

India / Fiction / 21'23'' / HD / Color / 2017

Up in the highlands of India a girl lives alone with her grandparents. After her grandfather is diagnosed with lung cancer, she watches as he calmly digs his own grave, furnishing it for his comfort in the hereafter with a handful of his worldly possessions. His light-hearted approach to dying is a gentle and laconic acknowledgement of the natural cycle of life and death. But things don’t always go as planned in the land of the living.
