Film Description:

“Freight” is a poignant and thought-provoking film that explores the story of Anya, a gifted dancer whose aspirations are derailed by her familial responsibilities. After the death of her father, Anya is left to care for her younger sister Devi, while their emotionally distant and unstable mother struggles to cope. When a tragic event takes place at a party, Anya’s sense of guilt and loss prompts her to consider drastic measures. Yet, in a remarkable show of resilience and strength, Anya finds a way to continue pursuing her love of dance, even in the face of physical and emotional challenges. The film offers a subtle yet profound reflection on the power of passion, perseverance, and self-discovery in the face of adversity.
