Nuttah traces the journey of a mother’s grief following the loss of her unborn child. Since the process of grieving is not linear, neither is the film. The narrative uses dreams, nightmares, illusions and fantasy to explore the many layers of emotion that the mother undergoes. Her journey from the domestic to the wild is made sense of through symbolism.

As though the exploration couldn’t be fairly dealt with in one domain, the film moves into the domain of fantasy, dark magic and even flashes of horror, to find a visual language to best tell the story of a loss that was neither fully whole, nor fully realised.
