17 MINUTES

17 MINUTES is a story of the artist photographer, Savar Seth, and his quest to find belonging with the charming, Anaya Bali. An attraction that starts off on the surface level, becomes the pivot of Savar’s life. But is the togetherness one to last?

This is not the typical, quintessential love story, but one filled with compassion and emotion, nevertheless.

A Desire for company, few moments of Endearment, 17 minutes of Love and a mark for Eternity.
