Tora’s Husband

Film Synopsis

Tora’s husband, Jaan, has a worldview unlike that of those living around him in his small town in Assam. Every day he strives to be a better version of himself and expects the same from his family, employees and acquaintances. In his attempt to create an ideal world, he sometimes gets aggressive and sometimes struggles with love and patience. But his expectations are crushed time and again, straining his relationship with his loved ones. The decline in his business due to the pandemic is adding to his woes. Feeling misunderstood and defeated, he tries to feel better by spending time with his children and drinking. His lost love and passion – football – becomes his escape.
