Synopsis

The bride is killed by their in-laws for a dowry and her journey through heaven where she questions to the material being.

Director's Statement

This film Siya is based on a Terai's dark culture where many brides are killed by their in-laws as well as their husband for a dowry by burning alive. Even though this happens there is still dowry system and everyone believes in marriage so I felt like I should film it by making fiction with keeping its poor reality.
