Weekend

30m Drama 2021

Weekend follows Arundhati and Ranjit, a couple navigating the aftermath of the brutal rape and murder of 14-year-old Prajakta Salunke, in a village not far from the cosmopolitan city of Pune. While they are both committed to lending their voices in protest, Arundhati begins to question if an individual protected by their caste- and gender-derived privilege can truly be an ally. Her scepticism is manifested by Saau, a vocal activist who resents the hijacking of the protest, and of the anti-caste movement at large, by politically motivated individuals; and Malcolm, an academic who challenges Ranjit’s view of a fair, unbiased system.
