33-year-old acclaimed dancer, Win Thabyay Tun, discovers approaches to reconcile her melancholy which grows as she ages.

Win Thabyay Tun has become a dancer since 1999 at the age of 15; her life is in full bloom and reaching a highly appreciated time of a typical dancer in Myanmar. In recent years, she has come to realize that her youthful look is one of the reasons why she has been hired to perform. She feels that she no longer has much time in her career, anticipating that the society’s acknowledgment towards her soon fade away.

Depression, discouragement, and self-doubt are taking over her slowly. She has her hair shaved and has become a temporary Buddhist nun to find inner peace. A month passed by, she enters back into her real life again. So, do frustration and fear! Kumudra explores Win’s endeavors to cope with her despair.
