Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6GJDgCz48Q

Synopsis: For an Indian woman, identity is a very elusive thing. Who she is, is often defined by her family, shaped by her children and their needs, and lost in the haze of providing for and accommodating others. Her health, hope and dreams take a beating. Before she knows it, she becomes a mere shadow of her true self.

Limitless explores the lives of eight long distance women runners, who rediscovered themselves through running. It is a film that reveals their insecurities, their bruised body image, their battered self-confidence, their guilt at accepting that they need some me-time too. This is the story of women who’ve reached the edge of their bounds, braved against them, pushed them. And discovered that only sky is the limit.

About the Director: Vrinda Samartha enjoys experimenting and constantly recreating new narrative styles. She finds raw and real characters and stories most appealing and powerful. She started as an assistant director in Trends Ad Films. Where she worked under National award winner V K Prakash. Since then she has worked on many national and international campaigns and feature films.

She has also acted in Kannada regional film Aidondla Aidu, which was a official selection in Indian Panorama. As a part of Believe Films she has worked on many Ad and digital campaign for agencies. Limitless is her first feature documentary as a Director.
