Enlightening and eloquent, this socially relevant drama sheds light on the stigma and trauma faced by homosexuals and transgenders in India. This sensitive subject is explored through trials and triumphs in the life of a transgender filmmaker, who travels along with his bisexual lover to Kolkata in an effort to make a biographical documentary about a legendary folk theatre actor's life. Will the documentary be successful? Will the filmmaker's present interpersonal relationships mirror that of the great actor's past?
