About Miss Man

Runtime: 25 minutes

Language: Bengali

Genre: Short

Manob is in love with another man. And he has a price to pay for that. Not only is he fighting the society around him, but his own homophobic father, who does not even refrain from physical violence to “cure his son from the disease of loving another man”. A younger Manob once danced in his school function, dressed up as a woman. And it is from that time he possibly realized that he might be a woman trapped inside a man’s body. The stakes get higher when he is also looked down upon by his lover, who refuses to accept him unless he transforms to a woman completely. Dejected, Manob decides to travel to the city to look into the possibilities of a sex change operation. Meanwhile, Manob’s father also arranges his marriage with the daughter of a relative. Cornered, Manob now has to make a choice between giving up his struggle or standing up for who he truly is.
