Coming from a country like India that is still in denial, where being HIV+ is still a curse, ’68 Pages’ rips open the underbelly of its society to reveal how it stigmatizes and shuns those who are HIV+ or even those who just want to be what they are.
Two women are in a relationship, though when tragedy strikes, a despotic law of the land cost’s one person’s life, a home and destroys the life of the one left behind.
Pim (played by Apinyaa Saiparna Sakuljaroensuk) is left behind when her male partner chooses to leave her to work abroad. She is certain all ties with him are cut. Enter another woman, Pat (played by Thai-Belgian singer Isabella Buaa Lete). The two women embark on an affair. They go as far as carrying out a wedding.
