There is an ancient legend, which says that the sting of the local scorpion in the deep desert of Jaisalmer, Rajasthan is bound to kill in 24 hours. The scorpion’s poison builds a feverish melody within the victim. The only cure is to find a sage singer who can read the melody in the victim’s pulse and then sing a counter-melody.
The Song of Scorpions is a story of twisted love, revenge and the redemptive power of a song. Nooran, carefree and defiantly independent, is a tribal woman learning the ancient art of healing from her grandmother, a revered scorpion-singer. When Aadam, a camel trader in the Rajasthan desert, hears her sing, he falls desperately in love. But even before they can get to know each other better, Nooran is poisoned by a treachery that sets her on a perilous journey to avenge herself and find her song.

„The film patterns itself like the music of Rajasthan’s desert civilization. Like the music, perennially suggesting a reality much larger than the apparent, the film comes together with tiny details, microscopic close-ups of sand and face, wood and vigorous body, wavering shadows and resilient light and colours which could suddenly open into the monumental, volatile landscape of menace and unpredictability, a landscape of urgent question: What is possession and what is love? What will we choose when we seek to really understand what makes us human: revenge or compassion?“
