Synopsis: “Lajwanti / The Honour Keeper” is a love story set in a village in the Thar desert in Rajasthan, India. A group of women in their daily long walk to collect water recite songs and exchange words that reveal their hidden desires. But one day when a crazy dreamer whose only passion is collecting doves crosses their path, one of them, Lajwanti, starts a journey that will take her out of this closed world. She, who initially seems to be the most radical in her beliefs cannot accept the group’s behavior towards her and abandons it. A new journey begins for her when she starts walking the long distance alone.
