Where did you watch this movie?

Aesthetically and captivating shot, this evocative drama captures the intricacies in the lives of fisher-folk, delving into their religion, hopes, dreams, politics, their intimate relationship with the sea, and the harsh reality of their lives. The story begins with a young couple's visit to their ancestral village to meet Estheramma (Nandita Das), who lives alone in her home overlooking the restless sea. Her son needs money but she refuses to sell her home on the excuse that her husband, who went out to sea 25 years ago, has still not returned, and she won't leave until he does. This sparks a flashback into Estheramma's past. As a young girl, Esther (Sunaina) had stumbled, literally, into Arulappa Saamy (Vishnu), the son of a fisher-folk couple. Arulappa Saami, or Arul, spends his time drinking at all hours of the day and wandering around aimlessly. He is the despair of his parents and unwittingly earns the dislike of Sister Benita (Anupama Kumar), who happens to be Esther's guardian, and the enmity of several others. This evocative saga revolves around his attempts to make something of his life and his discovery of how difficult it is to earn a good reputation. How does the past get interwoven with the present? What really happened to Arul and will Esther ever make peace with the events of her life?
