The short film is an exploration of the several stages of struggle when one steps out to pursue a dream. The narrative unfolds as a flashback of several memories of the protagonist, weaved together in a cohesive manner. Happiness of the present is juxtaposed against the pain and sadness of the past.

The film opens with an interview of a comedian who is at the acme of his success. While he shares lighthearted stories of a rose-tinted past, there is a suggestion of something deeper and darker underneath it all. Comedian earns full points for the sincerity and dedication of its effort. However, a little more time spent on colour grading and fine-tuning the cinematography would have perhaps worked better.
