Set against the backdrop of the 30-years of armed conflict for a separate state for Tamils in Sri Lanka which ended on the 18th May 2009, “OTRAI PANAI MARAM – SINGLE PALM TREE” is a striking film, spotlights the unprecedented destruction and loss of life. As many as 146,000 dead, Tamil towns reduced to rubble, families torn apart…. the brutal Sri Lankan military campaign caused untold hardship, pushing nearly half a million Tamils into squalid refugee camps in Wanni, while the government holding victory celebrations in the southern Sinhala state. This film takes audience through the painful journey of three lives affected by the war.
