Synopsis: From the POV of a conservative maternal uncle, who cares deeply for his Tsunami-orphaned niece and nephew, we see his gradual transformation as he accepts his niece’s relationship with a woman. The fisherman Singaram works hard to provide for his Tsunami-affected family while trying to arrange a groom for his niece, who rejects the many alliances he brings. At a crucial moment, Singaram comes to know that his niece Anandhi is in love with a fellow female teacher Kavita. As he comes to terms with his niece being a lesbian, he is ostracized by his community because of her sexual transgression. Kattumaram engages with patriarchy and sexual orientation in a coastal South Indian village.
