Synopsis:THAT GIRL IN YELLOW BOOTS is a thriller tracing Ruth’s search for her father - a man she hardly knew but cannot forget. Desperation drives Ruth to work without a permit at a massage parlour; a job her boy-friend procures for her. Torn between several schisms, Mumbai becomes the alien yet strangely familiar backdrop for Ruth's quest.
In the metropolis erupting with a million screaming dreams and fears, Ruth struggles to find her independence and space even as she is sucked deeper into the labyrinthine politics of the city's underbelly. And everyone wants a piece of her.
Battered, bruised, buffeted about...Ruth stumbles inexorably on towards the climax of her search. The revelations that follow are a double-edged sword.
"This is an enormously stylish film, crafting intimate pockets within the city where layered performances can unfold. In both style and subject, Kashyap defines the pulse of today’s Hindi independent cinema – Hindie, if you like."
- Cameron Bailey, Co-Director Toronto International Film Festival
"A familiar face at international festivals since he broke through with his action-packed Black Friday and considered one of the leaders of Indian independent cinema."
-Dan Fainaru, SCREEN
