In an alternate dystopian present, a married couple in the southern Indian state of Kerala discuss whether or not to become immortal by taking a new high-cost implant. The couple decide to give immortality a three-day experimental trial period, but things don’t turn out the way they expect. A relationship drama with a unique sci-fi twist, Ennennum deftly explores the idea of unconditional true love in a world where ‘until death-do-us-part’ may not be an option.
