"Mayomi" is a film about a young Sri Lankan woman's struggle to gain independence, while holding her troublesome family together in post-tsunami Sri Lanka. Mayomi lost her husband to the Tamil Tigers, and her mother and home to the tsunami. She is now the only female member left in her family, and single-handedly cares for her disabled father, her alcoholic brother and his abandoned six-year old son. She is also still homeless and knows that, in a country crippled by bureaucracy and corruption, this is unlikely to change. As Mayomi struggles to overcome these obstacles, her optimism and courage drive her forward in this moving and tender film.
