Hiding Divya is a film that takes a look at mental illness, specifically bipolar disorder and the effects it has on 3 generations of women. About the story of the film director Mizra told BollySpice, “The film has elements of dealing with mental illness but also is as much about family as anything else. It is about how to hold on to family while still holding on to yourself. The film is set in a small town in New Jersey. Linny (played by Pooja Kumar), the daughter of Divya (played by Madhur Jaffrey), left this town when she was sixteen and pregnant, and vowed never to return home. Divya lived their on her own with John, her partner. When John dies, Linny returns with her own daughter Jia (played by newcomer Madelaine Massey) in tow. It is about how Linny, with the help of her own daughter, learns to live with her mother, and face the secrets that the family has had buried for so long.”
Hiding Divya opens in theaters this Friday, August 20, in New York, New Jersey, and California. To find out more and to see the trailer for this fabulous film go to www.HidingDivya.com.
