If You Dare Desire imagines the life Swapna and Shucheta could have had together, as they travel far from their village into the unknown. A departure from the “happily ever after” story; the girls endure poverty and fear the constant threat of being found out. Still, their determination and the kindness from the people they meet on their journey offers them the chance to carve out a small world for their love and survival. Gorgeous shots of lonely landscapes and suffocated cities are juxtaposed with scenes of tenderness between the two lovers, tempering grief with hope.
