|Project||In the Belly of a Tiger|
Bhagole leaves home under the cover of night, leaving only a trail of chicken feathers at the edge of the forest to help his wife find his body the next morning. When Parabhata awakes and finds him waiting for the tiger, they must decide who will stay to ensure the survival of their family.
In the Belly of a Tiger is an examination of life at the edges of India Shining, the struggle of survival that forces a family to anatomize the value of human life, to make impossible decisions about its aged members, to navigate the insecurity of a future that has moved far from India’s villages.
