THE PARCEL

Human trafficking in Mumbai's red-light district

Drama

The Parcel tells the story of transgender sex worker, Madhu, who is given an unexpected and harrowing task. 

Now, at forty, Madhu has moved away from prostitution, her trade since her teens, and taken up begging to support Gurumai, the leader of the hijras (India’s ‘third gender’ made up of eunuchs and transgender people).

One day Madhu receives a call from Padma Madam, the most-feared brothel owner in Mumbai’s red-light district: A ‘parcel’ has arrived – a ten-year-old girl from the provinces – and Madhu has no choice but to prepare it for its fate.

Due to shoot early 2020, this feature film will be a heart-warming representation of alienation, society and morality.
