In the world of his large family, affluent Tamils living in Colombo, Arjie is an oddity, a funny boy who prefers dressing as a girl to playing cricket with his brother. In FUNNY BOY we follow the life of the family through Arjie s eyes, as he comes to terms both with his own homo-sexuality and with the racism of the society in which he lives. In the north of Sri Lanka there is a war going on between the army and the Tamil Tigers, and gradually it begins to encroach on the family s comfortable life. Sporadic acts of violence flare into full scale riots and lead, ultimately, to tragedy.
