About this submission
Girls uncuffed is a 10min stand alone short and also something I want to use as a proof of concept for a feature script I am developing. The story is based on two offbeat Indian sisters who journey to London to follow their dream of music. An old time aquaintance promises them help, but once in London instead of music they end up working at his Indian takeaway... their co-dependent relationship is tested as he threatens to rule and divide them. They finally have to make a choice to either stay or go on the run...
Inspired by my own journey with my sister from a small town in India to London to follow our dreams of making music somehow became the basic starting point of my story and gave me the freedom to distill an emotional truth of my own experience and fictionalize it into a metaphorical narrative.
