Set in 1930s southern India against the backdrop of a growing nationalist movement, BEFORE THE RAINS is the English language debut from acclaimed director Santosh Sivan. An idealistic young man, Bose, finds himself torn between his ambitions for the future and his loyalty to the past when people in his village learn of an affair between his British boss (Roache) and a local village woman.
