Middle Time – Priya Vasudevan
Maya is a present day Chennai-based lawyer who is investigating the mysterious death of her client, Tulsi – but everyone is a suspect; including Tulsi’s mother, husband, and daughter, who act strangely about her demise. So, in order to find the truth, Maya goes into sleuth-mode and finds a metal box under a mattress that contains an old paperback diary. Little does she know, that the book will transport her to sixteenth century India where a temple dancer, Achale, is investigating a similar murder, the strange death of Thulasi – a case that parallels Tulsi’s more than Maya would like to admit. Can Maya figure out how the murders are linked and catch the “killers” before they strike again? Or will she run out of time like her client did?
