Director Statement

During my time as an Art teacher at Kendriya Vidyalaya in Reckongpeo, located in the Kinnaur District of Himachal Pradesh, I came across some stories. These stories were about Leopard attacks that happened nearby. One story affected me deeply. It was about an old lady who was taken by a leopard from her own house in the middle of a small village called Ribba. Nobody could find any trace of her. This incident made me think a lot. I wondered about her family and who was responsible for this.
As a teacher, I also got to know many young students and their stories. I met a girl who felt lonely because her parents couldn't spend much time with her due to their busy jobs.
These two stories stayed with me, and I combined them to create this film. It was important to me that the film remained neutral and didn't blame anyone. In my view, there was no one person at fault. I wanted to show the complexity of life's experiences, where unexpected things can happen, and emotions are intertwined.

Through this film, I hope to capture the essence of these stories. I want to explore themes of vulnerability, responsibility, and how people deal with difficult situations.
