Synopsis: The narrative is an exploration of ennui, stagnancy and transformation. It is a slice of life, caught between two eternities of darkness. Through the course of the story, the protagonist ventures into an uncharted landscape of desires and choices. The film is an eulogic tribute to a dying art form, ventriloquism. The story has been woven from bildungsroman, and old Calcutta memories.
