The first India-set film for award-winning Iranian director Majid Majidi, Beyond The Clouds is a melodrama set in Mumbai’s impoverished underclass. A brother who lives on the wrong side of the law and his sister, who finds herself imprisoned for attempted murder after she defends herself from a sexual assault, are the two central characters.
Teenager Amir is constantly dodging trouble while dealing drugs in the underbelly of Mumbai. Following a drug bust, he evades the cops and ends up on the doorstep of his estranged sister Tara. Complications from concealing Amir land Tara in jail, but she still sees her brother as her only hope of living in the outside world again. While their lives have been darkened by despair, hope may shine from beyond the clouds.
