Based on a Kannada folktale about Vanaja, a young woman who can magically turn into a flowering tree at will. Because of her gift, she is married to a prince, whose sister Kaikeyi is envious of Vanaja’s ability. The film uses hand-animated cutout puppets to evoke the rich Indian tradition of oral storytelling.
