Title: ENIGMA – The Fallen Angel
Runtime: 37 min
Director: Abhay Thakur
Placement: Honorable Mention
Competition: March, 2021
Synopsis: A seemingly perfect, yet flawed young woman has her routine appointment with the town’s most renowned psychiatrist. Turns out, Richa has more than usual to share today. The 60-minute appointment is about to begin now…
Richa Kapoor, hailing from a wealthy background has been suffering from an unusual disorder. She has been treated & experimented with everything to find the perfect cure. However, everything of this has just left her with pain, hopelessness & rage.
Ultimately she leaves on a quest to find one herself which is when Myra Singh enters her life. A stark contrast between both of them unknowingly blossoms into a friendship, which is when Richa plans to confess Myra, the real reason behind her mood swings & erratic behavior.
Richa is surprisingly taken aback when Myra takes all of her pain in an extremely understanding manner & in fact, even has a cure for her. However at what cost?
On a parallel track, Dr. Rajiv Menon has a diagnosis, a reveal that shall rock her to the core.
It is often said that to understand whether a person is good or bad, right or wrong; it should be seen what are the choices he makes when he has to choose between his convenience & morality. ENIGMA is an extremely different take on the real, dark & selfish instincts that reside among all of us. Summing up, we need to understand the great words of Friedrich Nietzsche, “ He who fights his own demons, must take care he doesn’t become one.”
