Synopsis

In contemporary India, Trishna (Freida Pinto) meets a wealthy young British businessman Jay Singh (Riz Ahmed) who has come to India to work in his father's hotel business. After an accident destroys her father's Jeep, Trishna goes to work for Jay, and they fall in love. But despite their feelings for each other, they cannot escape the conflicting pressures of a rural society which is changing rapidly through industrialisation, urbanisation and, above all, education.

Trishna's tragedy is that she is torn between the traditions of her family life and the dreams and ambitions that her education has given her.


Based on the novel "Tess of the d'Urbervilles" by Thomas Hardy.
