In rural India, a determined young girl, Savita, yearns for education and a bright future. However, as her farmer parents anxiously struggle to find a suitable match for her, societal expectations place immense pressure on her to prioritize marriage over personal aspirations. 

Facing countless rejections from suitors, she must navigate a world where the pursuit of marriage overshadows the very sustenance of life. Shot with non-actors from the village, Sthal (A Match) is the director's debut feature film.
