Synopsis:
 
A story of two adolescent boys Sameer and Nachiket (cousins who are best friends) standing on the crossroads of life. They must choose between a petty, worldly, small existence and taking to the sky in a life of free existence. In their rather unusual game of hide and seek, one cousin hides amongst death, whilst the other searches in the living world around him. Samir’s search leads him towards experiencing oneness when he and Nachiket are reunited.


Director Umesh Kulkarni:
 
Originally from Pune, India, Umesh Kulkarni is a young filmmaker who has received significant acclaim. An alumnus of the Film and Television Institute, his short documentary Three of Us premiered at Berlinale 2008 and received many international awards. The Well (Vihir) is his second feature. His first, Vallu (The Wild Bull) premiered in Rotterdam 2008 and received much critical acclaim. His films are made with a passionate restraint where he does not believe in “intervening with the characters in the story.”
