In a society where family honor plays an important role and forced marriages remain the norm, what happens to a teenager who refuses to give in to a husband thrice her age?

Teenage, Viyan is given to the wealthy elderly Haji Hemmo in a forced marraige. When she runs out of the bedroom and climbs a tree, refusing to sleep with him he looses face and becomes the laughing-stock of the town. In return, he punishes her by locking her up in the bedroom. The more he's mocked by the townsfolk, the harder he punishes Viyan.Meanwhile, a traveling young artist, Botan attempts to liberate her. This leads to Haji Hemmo's resolve to set her on fire.

"[Rosebiani] manages to depict the still horrendous conditions faced by the region's women while demonstrating the growing artistic freedom seeping into its milieu."

"At times the film will remind you of magical realism. Viyan climbs a tree in a wedding dress to avoid Hemmo's all-too-persistent advances, a scene that will remind you of a Gabriel Garcia Marquez novel."
