Wizards, magic spells, and heroic sword battles are just fantasy for some, but for Veera they’re a meaningful part of conquering her inner trauma. When Veera transforms into her LARP (live-action role-play) persona V, the game’s fantasy battlefields give her the space to combat her psychological turmoil. Tormented by her past, in LARP Veera finds the support and solace she needs to become the hero of her own story.
The film is nominated for 'Rights Now!' Award
