Recently screened at UCLA in the Third World Cinema Program and screened in France and Melbourne.

Once again, this is a film about the instabilities of youthful urban life, its search for roots, and its lust fur survival. Chandare works for an insurance company that repossesses vehicles from customers who have defaulted on payments. Both he and his girlfriend are part of a generation of young people who have flooded into the cities in search of work. They are part of the cityscape of Colombo. When the girlfriend discovers she is pregnant both she and Chandare try to put together the money they need for an illegal abortion. But theirs is an arduous journey as the film repeatedly and insistently narrates a story of life's uncertainty. Full of twists and turns, the film ends as inconclusively as it begins.
