    • Synopsis
    • Manoramya is a liberated woman surviving by her own rules, beliefs and religion.
      Her young daughter Varnasi, falls head over heels in love with Sasha.
      Manoramya’s mother Jinawathie Iskoole Haamine does not even try to lay down the law for her granddaughter. Was there any point when she had failed so badly in the case of her own daughter, Varnasi’s mother? Little did she know that Manoramya would oppose Varnasi’s love interest so vehemently.
      Manoramya refuses to meet her daughter’s lover, Sasha. She was not known to give up easily. As a last resort, she writes a story that isn’t very flattering to her own self.
      She harbors in her heart a sorrow while writing a story that is powerful enough to shatter the earth and the sky and splinter her very self into a million pieces. It would have registered 9.1 on the Richter Scale.
      With a 30 year old civil war and an earthquake as its backdrop, the film explores the intricate relationships and feelings between a mother and a daughter, their struggles and their inabilities to divulge a terrible truth of a bitter past, present and a future whilst attempting to find peace and understanding among themselves.
