Written by the director, the story revolves around a young man, a war photographer recently released after being held captive in Syria for several months. Back in his hometown, Paris, he unsuccessfully tries to resume the normal course of his existence. So he decides to leave for India, where his mother lives, to try to rebuild his life. There, he meets a 17-year-old Indian girl who will assume a growing importance for him. As the weeks fly by, he tries to give his life new meaning.

Produced by Philippe Martin and David Thion for Les Films Pelléas, Maya is being co-produced by Arte France Cinéma, Orange Studio, O / Dauphin Films, Pio & Co and German outfit Razor Film. Having been pre-purchased by Canal+ and Ciné+ in France, and by ZDF in Germany, the feature is also being backed by the CNC and the FFA via the French-German mini co-production treaty, CN6 and Cinemage 12.
