Bravely Fought The Queen

Synopsis:
Bangalore in the 1990s. Indias's silicone valley. Lalitha, Bright-eyed and bubbly, drops in on Dolly, the wife of her husband's employer. For Dolly, this is yet another source of irritation to set alongside her demanding, decrepit mother-in-law and her dangerous alcoholic sister. The two sisters are married to two brothers, both advertising executives. The epitome of the "Indian dream" - but their dark secrets start to emerge through a single night of vengence and recrimination.
