Even after so many years, Mumbai remains an ethereal place for our film makers to explore. Thousands of dreamers arrive here every year, and soon start feeling islanded, repelled by how cold and brash the city can be.

Exploring this dark side of Mumbai, debut director, Ruchi Oberoi has woven three parallel stories, based on autocratic human behavior. Two of them are black comedies and one is a comic tragedy.

The first story is centered on a middle aged man stuck in the routine of life, who thinks having fun can is punishment.

In another story, a woman finds solace in charming TV characters, when her own life is dulled by a husband, who is on life support in the hospital.
