Following her parent’s divorce, little Kali lives with her mother and her boyfriend, a cop. One Saturday, the girl goes to see her father, who leaves her in the car while he visits a friend. When he returns, Kali has disappeared. The director of Gangs of Wasseypur, that great epic tale that caused a huge sensation last year in Sitges, returns with Ugly, a violent criminal drama.
His visual and narrative daring was demonstrated in his films screened in Sitges: the two parts of Gangs of Wasseypur (12) and Ugly (13). In 2013, he was given an award by the French government.
