Earth (Paangshu)


Synopsis: Babanona (Nita Fernando), a launderer belonging to one of the lowest castes in Sri Lanka is
summoned to an identification parade where she identifies Lionel as one of the paramilitary men
who abducted her son during the 1988/89 insurgency. While Indika (Jagath Manuwarna), the young
public prosecutor shows little or no interest in helping Babanorna in finding her missing son,
Namalee (Nadie Kammallaweera), the pregnant wife of the paramilitary man seeks forgiveness from
the launderer. As the prolonging hearings in the dilapidated courthouse continue for months,
shameful secrets are gradually unearthed by the defeated rebels, victorious soldiers and those who
were crushed in between.
