Set in the heart of the crowded streets of a small town in India, Lipstick Under My Burkha shows the secret lives of four women in search of a little freedom. Although repressed and trapped in their world, they claim their desires by small acts of courage. Lipstick Under My Burkha is an insolent comedy, fighting against the submission of women to laws and traditions. For the director, lipstick is the symbol of all these hidden dreams and desires.
