A WINDOW TO HER DREAMS

Aruna, a young divorcee, marries Bhuvan, an averagely successful young man who had a crush on Aruna, back in college. Both make promises of ever after with preconceived expectations. Hers, freedom from a judgemental society and validation of herself and his, unconditional love and partnership and the coming true of his dreams of marrying the ‘One’. They are equally shattered to learn that despite their best intentions life does sometimes play the villain. Aruna’s learned conditioning, developed as a result of the oppressive years spent with her abusive and often violent first husband Rafi constantly coming in the way of their married normalcy. Bhuvan valiantly trying to ignore the signs of her distress rather than confront them. Their good intentions are tried at every step. When it looks like the wheel of happiness is turning in their favour, situations arise to again plunge them headlong into turbulent waters continuing to test their determination to hold on to the dream of a better tomorrow. Aruna’s distrust, Bhuvan’s silences and Rafi’s resurrection in their life leads to create a downward spiral that shakes Aruna to the core. As she stands on the precipice of a second failed marriage she recalls her hopes and expectations and how she herself has become the hurdle in the path leading to the life of her dreams. Will this serves as a trigger for Aruna to take the control back, the control she had willingly surrendered the first time? Or is she going to be held back by her own apprehensions choosing to stay the victim?
