The Burden (Baaram)


Synopsis: Karuppasamy, a 64-year old night watchman, lives with his sister Menmozhi and her sons Veera, Mani and Murugan, in a small town in Tamil Nadu. While returning early one morning, Karuppasamy is involved in a hit-and-run accident, and breaks his hip. His taciturn son Senthil decides to take him home to their remote ancestral village, saying that a traditional bone-setter will treat his father. Instead, 8 days later, Karuppasamy is dead.

At his funeral, Veera, who has just returned from Chennai, hears something from one of the mourners that makes his blood run cold. And the burning question that faces him is – how did Karuppasamy die?
