Mithya is a journey alongside Mithun, an 11-year-old, who is coming to terms with the loss of his parents. We walk in step with his tottering feet, as they search for solid ground. Can a new house be home, can friendships be forged again or is it all just a search for something long gone?

Director : Sumanth Bhatt
A software engineer turned filmmaker, Sumanth has written & directed 4 short films before this. Mithya is his first feature film. The passing away of a young couple in the family, orphaning two kids, triggered a chain of thoughts. How would the little kids come to terms? How long before the wounds heal, or do they even? How do children grieve? Mithya is an attempt to find answers to these.
