STRANGE FRUIT is both a love story – and a mesmerizing journey into the heart of darkness that beats deep within this paradise.

As a child, Maya was forced to flee Sri Lanka following the anti-Tamil riots. As a fiercely independent young woman, she returns to explore the country of her birth, when she falls deeply, serendipitously in love with gentle, romantic Malik.

But tragedy strikes when her mother is killed by a terrorist bomb, setting into motion a life-changing chain of events.

From raves on moonlit beaches and secret drag balls on private islands, to encounters with deat squads in forests dense with unspeakable secrets.
