LGBT Toronto Film Festival

Wajood poster english

Wajood (Selfhood) revolves around a young hijra’s (trans-woman) life in Mumbai, who seems to fancy herself with an auto-rickshaw driver. When confronted by the elders of her community about her unrealistic expectations, she goes on a subconscious quest to know if somebody will ever fall in love with her. Or, is this thought as naive as told by everyone around her?

Purushi, Pratiksha and Shalu are three best friends and trans women struggling to find their place in contemporary Indian society, often via the only means of making a living available to them: sex work and begging.
