because desire originates in the unconscious and the unconscious knows
nothing of sexual
film is a journey with men who call themselves kothi. They
are men for their families and society, but for themselves they

both of fear and disgrace of and for their families and 'husbands'.
And yet, they celebrate womanhood in their
world of disguises.
