PLATZHALTER-Thulasi had a rough time growing up in a society where girls are expected to be obedient, dutiful and willing to get married when their parents tell them to. But Thulasi was always different. She doesn’t want to wear a saree, she’s not interested in cooking, and she decided from an early age that she would never be anyone´s wife. Born outside caste she is expected not to dream of greater things, but Thulasi is determined to live life on her own terms. She wants to be someone. She wants to be a boxer. “Light fly, fly high” follows this couragous girl through three eventful years with many unexpected turns. Taking the audience on a journey with extreme ups and downs, victories and defeats, both in the ring and in her personal life.-PLATZHALTER
