An urban Indian family on vacation has made a stopover at an old, dilapidated fort. Irritable with travel fatigue they decide to part ways and meet at the entrance in 15 minutes. 'A Perfect Day'; traces these crucial 15 minutes spent alone by each of the family members. The Father, a photography enthusiast is obsessed with his Digital SLR camera but is increasingly unhappy with the pictures he's clicked, sparking off something of a mid life crisis. While the daughter is going through a hysterical heartbreak over the cell phone, the imposing walls of the fort send the son's imagination on an overdrive. The Mother, much to the horror of her bourgeois gentility is left alone with a sleazy guide. Back at the entrance, each of them pretends nothing much has happened. But the fissures beneath the surface of a seemingly perfect day linger on.
