Orchids of the Rainforest

Description

Geetha’s seemingly perfect world is shattered when she loses her husband of five years, forcing her into a period of introspection. Her younger brother, Yuva, has to confront his own prejudices as his relationship with his partner gradually crumbles by the day.

Sabitha-their cousin and the youngest of the three-is about to reveal a secret that she had kept from her family for many years, and has to live with the repercussions. As they deal with their personal troubles, the cousins encounter and bond with other Malaysian Indians who are trying to break the shackles of tradition.

Together, they attempt to reconcile their identities with their culture and heritage, while realising that acceptance is sometimes found in the unlikeliest of places.
