Lipstick Under My Burkha

Set in the crowded lanes of small town India, Lipstick Under My Burkha chronicles the secret lives of four women in search of a little freedom.

A burkha-clad college girl struggles with issues of cultural identity and her aspirations to be a pop singer. A young two-timing beautician, seeks to escape the claustrophobia of her small town. An oppressed housewife and mother of three, lives the alternate life of an enterprising saleswoman. And a 55 year-old widow rediscovers her sexuality through a phone romance.

Trapped in their worlds, they claim their desires through secret acts of rebellion.
