The Visible And The Hidden

With a butcher named Shahnawaz in deep waters over selling illegal beef and his wife Fatima unwilling to conceive another child, matters are made worse for him as one of his daughters is found dead in the woods.

Transgender officer Latika Archana becomes the lead on the case and she begins to unravel the deceit, infidelity, and abuse running rampant in the town at the hands of the corrupt politicians. As Latika tries to unravel the entangled lives of these men, government officials, and Shahnawaz and his family, more people are pronounced dead and Latika’s investigation becomes complicated. She soon finds her interrogation leading to three men.

Soon Latika too becomes the target and is burned alive in broad daylight. Luckily her investigation yielded enough evidence to locate and pursue the accused, who confessed to the crimes, detailing for law enforcement each connected relationship and event that led to the string of murders.

My story, The Visible and The Hidden, is a brave, dark, gritty, & heartfelt suspense murder mystery set in contemporary India. It dives into themes that many people in our country are uncomfortable discussing, and I want to talk about them more loudly through cinema.
