The thematic concern at the heart of the narrative is one about class disparity, financial privilege, along with a suggestion of more wealth leading to more problems. All of this is explored through the eyes of a young man who struggles between his aspiration to complete higher education, and the demands of his father to run their small corner tea-shop.

From his position from behind the counter, he watches a wealthy peer live the life that seems a million miles away. However, a longer glimpse into the latter's life brings a seismic change in his perspective, also making the intentions of the plot clear for the viewer. The film evidences potential in weaving a plot marked by its compelling motivations (albeit in want of a little polishing when it comes to execution), and paves the path for more similar projects by the team.
