The film aims to start a conversation about the absolute need to harbour passion and dreams, and also the desire to fight for them even in the face of all kinds of adversity. It introduces us to several characters and their reactions to heartache and obstacles. A dialogue on suicide and mental health is also attempted.

The overarching message that remains the common thread that ties the narrative together is a message about one's reason for existence. The film suggests that this includes one's dreams and hopes, as well as the regrets and greatest failures. In the process, it becomes a reminder to steer clear of a life where the senses have been numbed, because the other alternative is the realisation of perhaps the painful rejection of some of these desires and dreams. It is important to engage with deep emotions and thoughts, even if sometimes they might bring with them an unpleasant feeling, as opposed to denying all emotion to protect yourself from misery, emphasises the narrative.
