Directed by Somnath Sen

After her mother’s death, fiery Leela leaves her ‘perfect life’ in India for a job as a visiting professor at an American university. One of her students is drawn to her, despite the presence of her philandering husband, a famous poet. Inevitably, the relationship begins to overheat. LEELA is Sen’s directorial début.
