Kanya intimately explores the life of an Indian teenager experiencing puberty as her conservative family ignores her physical and intellectual transformation. Although Kanya yields to their demands, she experiences deep inner trauma. Will this lead her to accept tradition or to revolt against the conventional expectations of a woman?

Born and raised in Chennai, Apoorva Satish was fascinated by the power of Tamil filmdom in state politics, which ignited in her a passion for creating films that are socially and politically aware. Apoorva′s primary goal is to explore personal stories around socially relevant contemporary ideas and themes.
