Capsule: LUNACY

By Simran Sachar

Trigger Warning: Sexual Abuse and Rape

A movement film about sexual abuse and rape and the haunting aftermath that take place inside and outside of a woman’s body. LUNACY explores the expectations, and image placed upon young women and their innocence versus what society really wants from this innocence. The aftermath contains how this experience shaped Simran's movement. From Simran's experiences, she brings you LUNACY from the very depth of the most honest corner of her heart.
