What is it like to grow up into a world, which is on the verge of disappearing? Descending from a long line of actors in an ancient Indian theatre tradition, the ten-year-old Sreehari, searches for a stage on which to perform his art, in a world which leaves tradition behind in its quest for modernization.

The Backstage of Tradition accompanies Sreehari, a young actor in the “Kūṭiyāṭṭam” tradition, the last living remnant of ancient Indian drama. In the temple, Sreehari encounters “Kūṭiyāṭṭam” as a visual sacrifice to the gods, as a ritual which only those of the actors' caste are allowed to perform there. At home, we see him with his parents, both distinguished “Kūṭiyāṭṭam” performers. Backstage, in the secular theater constructed by his parents outside the temple walls, Sreehari witnesses the paradox of tradition- in order to keep a tradition alive, one has to change it.

The Backstage of Tradition is a story about the transformations on and of the stage transferred into a secular world. It is a story about the ultimate stage- the human face and its transformations.
