Logline: A troubled journalist looks into a suspicious suicide; his investigation leads him into the Indian hinterland, where he meets a man who offers him a terrible choice, forcing the journalist to confront the darkness in his own heart.
Synopsis: 'Lightless' is a journey through psychological darkness, set in the insanity and lawlessness of a third world country with degraded institutions. Inspired by Joseph Conrad's 'Heart of Darkness', the story follows Dharam, a journalist with a nightmarish past, as he struggles through a web of lies, hypocrisy and horror. Upon meeting a powerful 'Guru' in an Indian village, he sees things that confirm his twisted view of the world: that life is meaningless and absurd. He allows himself to be pushed over the edge of his own morality, into an abyss from which it may be impossible to escape.
