Your Love

When a granddaughter discovers her grandmother's painful secret about her long lost lover, she vows to reunite them in hopes of giving her grandmother a second chance at love.

Satwant, a devoted grandmother asks her granddaughter Sonia to get her prayer book for evening prayer. As Sonia lifts the book an old letter falls at her feet. She begins to read the letter and we journey into her grandmother's past and discover the truth behind her forbidden love. As a young girl immigrating to the US from India, Satwant’s childhood friend Jasminder is the only one who makes her feel at home in a foreign place. As their friendship blossoms into something more Satwant’s mother grows suspicious of their bond and forces her to marry, tearing the two apart. Satwant sneaks away and comes to see Jasminder one last time slipping her bracelet on her wrist and sharing a final kiss.

After learning of her grandmother's heartbreak, Sonia finds Jasminder and invites her over, unbeknownst to her grandmother. Answering the knock at the door, Satwant doesn’t immediately recognize the face looking back at her. Once she sees the bracelet all her memories come flooding back. Satwant and Jasminder embrace as they did so many years ago and Sonia breathes a sigh of relief.

Our LGBTQ love story is set to the backdrop of DJ Khanvict’s remixed imagining of iconic Punjabi folk song Ik Tera Pyaar originally sung by Noor Jahan. The classic lyrics ring true as we see that our one true love can carry us through life no matter how the world changes, and that it’s never too late for love.

Director Statement

Your Love, is my love letter to the LGBTQIA south asian elders and their untold and unfinished love stories. I was raised by my maternal grandmother, (my Biji) and hearing her stories of hope and sacrifice is what inspired me to become a storyteller. Being out and open about your sexuality is a privilege that is not afforded to all. I wanted to share this intergenerational story celebrating queer love and showing that all love is timeless.
Thank you for your consideration,
-Sundeep Morrison
