Anu And Aaji_Poster.jpg

16 year old Anu is a studious girl whose life gets displaced when her 70 year old granny (Aaji) falls seriously ill. Dealing with the loss of her privacy and the extra pressure to be the nurturer to the once nurturing granny, Anu succumbs and doesn't realize when indifference seeps into her attitude. But the ever-loving granny remains the same, strangely understanding Anu's pressures better than anyone else. Anu and Aaji is a fictional short about the relationship between the 16 year old Anu and her granny and Anu's effort in understanding and empathizing with old age.
