There's troubled love when Bollywood visits Music City, USA
Mary Poser lives a modest life in the Country and Western town of Nashville. Simha, a visiting Bollywood film director, notices her beauty and sparks fly between them. Mary’s world is turned upside-down when her car rolls over a bridge into the Cumberland River. Mysteriously, a hand appears to save her. Mary’s family says it was the hand of God. Mary thinks otherwise. Mary finds counsel with her aunt, who works with the butterflies at the Zoo because she cannot bring herself to cross the bridge that almost took her life. Simha returns to Mary but her ex-boyfriend, Jason, seeks to intervene by rekindling their relationship. To everyone’s surprise, Simha makes a Bollywood film in Nashville. Jason proposes to Mary with his own distracted affections for another. All the time, she must hide a dangerous secret that betrays her suffering. To follow her heart or follow the crowd - which is more dangerous? Can Mary cross the bridge to her heart for her butterflies?
Do we willingly sabotage opportunities for true love and happiness? MARY POSER is an exposé of self-inflicted suffering. On the surface MARY POSER is a fun and frolicking love story. Underneath this is a message of hope and inspiration for anyone who feels stuck in a vortex of anxiety and self-harm.
