A young Indian woman who marries into an extended family living in Brampton becomes the target of her husband’s anger and her mother-in-law’s venomous manipulation, in this searing study of culturally tolerated domestic abuse.


A searing study of culturally tolerated domestic abuse, Heaven on Earth boasts a no-holds-barred performance by Bollywood star Preity Zinta as Chand, a young woman who leaves her caring family and idyllic Punjabi home to marry Rocky (Vansh Bhardwaj), a young man living in Brampton, Ontario. It soon becomes clear to Chand that there’s something very wrong with her new situation. Living with Rocky and his extended family in a small house, Chand becomes a prime target for her husband’s stress and frustration as her venomous mother-in-law encourages her son to resolve any discussion or dispute with his new bride physically. Driven to desperation, Chand seeks refuge in fantasies inspired by the folk tales told to her by her mother.
