India, 19th century: on the outskirts of a decrepit village called Tumbbad lives Vinayak, the stubborn, conniving and illegitimate son of the village lord, obsessed with mythical ancestral treasure. He suspects the secret of the treasure lies with his great-grandmother, a witch, who has been sleeping for centuries. Confronting her finally puts him face to face with the guardian of the treasure, an evil fallen god.

Tickets are available online.
