The Cashew Queen of Puttlam Village tells the story of Gheetha, a young Sri Lankan entrepreneur who's diminutive stature and meek demeanor belies her giant stature in the hearts and minds of all she touches. She amazes me, and it's my hope that our little film has captured a glimpse of her quiet power.
