drama · Short Films · hindi

The film is an innocent narrative, conjured from the point of view of a child, the youngest member of a family. As he follows his elder brother, parents and grandfather around the house with a camera, an image of the familial space is conjured for the spectator. During the coronavirus lockdown, while the mother spends all her time doing domestic chores, the brother in front of screens and the father before his laptop or on the phone with his friends, the grandfather finds companionship in plants.

It is through objective observations, minus any emotional charge on the part of the child, that the viewer is introduced to a breakdown of communication among families and the distance that exists despite all members being within the same physical space. The film further employs skilful poetry to share its intentions.
