What would you do for the one you love? Inspired by the Indian folktale of Savitri. ‘Destiny asks the question, ‘Is Love Stronger Than Death?’ A young woman confronts the personification of Death, in an effort to save the life of her fiance. Death weaves three romantic tragedies and offers to unite the girl with her lover, if she can prevent the death of the lovers in at least one of the episodes. In each story, a woman, trying to save her lover from his ultimate tragic fate, fails. The young lady realizes the meaning of the tales and takes the only step she can to reunite herself with her lover.
