Smita, Giulia and Sara, three women from various parts of the world, never met before. But even though they live on different continents and in different cultures, they are connected.

Three women, three continents, three cultures; in The Braid, the film adaptation of author and director Laetitia Colombani tells a story of three lives, which despite big differences are intertwined.
In India Smita is a so-called untouchable who makes a living by cleaning up excrement. She dreams of giving her daughter an education, something that seems impossible, but she ready to give up everything for a better future.
In Montreal, Canada, Sarah is divorced mother who tries to hide her breastcancer diagnosis as to not to disrupt her planned promotion.
In Sicily, Italy, Giulia tries to uphold her father's wig atelier, despite the many setbacks. 

A story of determination of women and subconscious connection.
