Synopsis/ Description
Through the experiences of four different men, ranging in age from 20s to 40s, Mardistan explores the notion of contemporary manhood in a rapidly globalising India. A middle-aged writer attempting to make sense of the physical and sexual abuse he witnessed growing up in an elite military academy, a working class father of twin daughters resisting the pressure to have a son, a young college student searching for a girlfriend with whom he can lose his virginity, a middle-aged gay man deciding to come out to his wife after nearly 20 years of marriage, together make up different dimensions of what it means to be a man in India today.
