Sudeshna Sen is a Seattle based filmmaker. Her films have screened at Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF), Outfest (LA) Boston LGBT Film Festival (Wicked Queer), New York Indian Film Festival (NYIFF) Chicago South Asian Film Festival to name a few. Previously she was Professor of Japanese literature and Visual Culture at University of Washington and University of Utah. She describes herself as " a filmmaker of quiet moments, small interludes of meaning and emotion that are unforgettable for those in it, and unknown to others. In everyday life amidst all the color and bustle of things, quiet moments often go unnoticed by everyone except the two people for whom it carries great import. Change doesn’t always come with fanfare. Sometimes it sneaks up on us in a quiet moment or a small gesture. As we go through life, it is important to pause and dwell on these quiet moments that delicately yet irrevocably change our lives forever".
On the threshold of womanhood, amidst the bright colorful flurry of an Indian bridal shower, two young girls pass a secret designed to alter their lives forever
