“I Am” is about issues that bruise modern Indian society, short in four different cities across India where the protagonists share a common dream – a desire to regain their lives. I AM AFIA is the story of a single woman who wants to experience motherhood. But she is afraid of the ticking clock, and unable to trust or even wait for a man, she decides to find that perfect donor who can give her the perfect child. Her search takes her through the underbelly of desire- desperation. I AM MEGHA, is a story of two friends – a Kashmiri pandit woman and a muslim woman – separated by conflict. Against the backdrop of the ethnic cleansing in Kashmir in the late 80’s and early 90’s, this story tells of loss of home and identity. I AM ABHIMANYU is the story of a child sexual abuse survivor. Most unfortunately, according to a survey conducted by the Ministry of Women and Child Development and UNICEF, 53% of children in India are abused. I AM OMAR is a horrific tale of sexual discrimination; blackmail and prejudice is part of the torrid fabric. It reveals how the police use Article 377 (law under Indian Penal code which criminalizes homosexuality) to harass and blackmail gay men.
I AM is born of true life incidents.
