‘Diana’ takes place the day after the Princess of Wales’ death and follows Mohit, an Indian pre-op transsexual on an emotional journey set against the backdrop of a day that shocked a nation and will change her life forever.
Rejected by her family in India and working as a prostitute in London to pay for her hormone therapy, Mohit’s past continues to scar her life and she strongly relates to the isolation and loneliness suffered by the Princess. It is this connection that binds Mohit so closely to this iconic figure and ultimately acts as a catalyst in helping Mohit set herself free.
