Summary, etc.:
Set in the city of Lahore in 1947, this film chronicles the fate of a religiously diverse group of working-class friends during the partition of India and Pakistan.
Earth is a lush and passionate film that opens in 1947, before India and Pakistan became independent. Lahore is a cosmopolitan city seen through the eyes of a group of working class friends from different religions. Metha chronicles the fate of this group and the maddening religious fervour that sweeps the region as the partition of the two countries is decided and Lahore is ceded to Pakistan.
