Wajood (Selfhood) revolves around a young hijra’s (trans-woman) life in Mumbai, who seems to fancy herself with an auto-rickshaw driver. When confronted by the elders of her community about her unrealistic expectations, she goes on a subconscious quest to know if somebody will ever fall in love with her. Or, is this thought as naive as told by everyone around her?
