Lori (Lullaby) is a quiet and sincere portrayal of life as it came to be during the coronavirus lockdown and quarantine. It achieves the same by taking us into the experiences of a couple.

Soon after their shift to a new city, the wife finds herself dealing with pregnancy, cooking and other chores, and simply a life without her doctor husband in a locked down world. This, in turn, invokes a reality of emotional isolation, along with very practical, everyday obstacles. The narrative further employs poetry to present a message of hope irrespective of how bleak things may seem at the horizon or how different today might seem from yesterday.

Additionally, the film maintains its calm tone throughout, and yet, the progression of events comes to be marked by several emotions. They range from annoyance and anger to despair and heartache, until all of them eventually get triumphed by hope, a sense of community and the warmth and solace of loved ones.
