A Place of Our Own (Ek Jagah Apni)
Laila and Roshni, two trans women, are looking for a house after they are evicted from the place they rented. It soon becomes evident that their search for a home is also their ongoing search for a place in this society that wants to keep them away in a section that cannot be the center. As the search for a home continues, we realize it transcends physical spaces and biological bonds. New friendships blossom and help comes from unexpected quarters.
