Child sexual abuse is a more common reality in India than we choose to acknowledge. The short film is an attempt to remind the viewer of this disturbing aspect of our day-to-day lives. The narrative communicates its message using suggestions and hiding more than it reveals. It is in the gaps that the viewer finds the story.

Further, it is an exploration of the human mind and the manner in which childhood trauma can potentially affect an individual in their adult life. Amidst all of this, it also draws attention to the large number of kids who are extremely vulnerable to abuse of all kinds at the hands of seemingly harmless adults, but with far sinister motives and intentions.
