Part of an emerging queer cinema from South India, Kattumaran tells of patriarch Singaram and his orphaned niece Anan, fisher-folk survivors of the Tsunami. Beautiful Anan teaches in the local school, where she falls for a new female supply teacher. As Singaram tries to come to terms with this revelation, he is ostracised by the community. Gossip about the women’s relationship spreads further and Singaram is left facing the choice to either defend his beloved niece, or give sway to an angry community. Kattumaram is a beautiful and tender tale of unconditional love.
