Trigger warning: Suicide

The Sanskrit title of the film translates to rebuilding or reconnecting with the aim to combine. It is the same idea that drives the plot forward as the paths of two improbable characters overlap in a very unexpected manner.

Two men have arrived at the same site of an empty building to end their lives by suicide. In their darkest moment, a conversation develops between them. As they exchange the reasons that led them to this point in their lives, an almost familial bond develops between the characters, one that completely alters the course of their decision. In the process, while employing Sanskrit as its medium, the film offers a well-intentioned story of hope and second chances.
