This is a true story about Satyabati, nay, about all the Satyabatis around us who are rebels and refuse to mould themselves to fit into rigid pre-defined social norms to be 'normal.' And these misfits of society are instantly la-belled 'abnormal' and hence they need to be cured, controlled and confined to subjugate them. Satyabati finds her world a difficult place to live in. Her loving and caring parents constantly try to make their maladjusted daugh-ter feel comfortable. Satyabati has an elder brother who wishes he had a 'normal' sister and a younger brother who has never had the opportunity to be well-acquainted with his 'Didi' because ever since he can recollect, Saty-abati has been languishing in a mental asylum. Satyabati was an all-rounder - a brilliant student, equally talented in sports. especially in swimming, yet she has been barred from participating in all her favourite activities. Something somewhere has snapped. Her world has turned topsy-turvy and the vivacious girl has slowly and inexorably gone mad. Or has she' Who can define clearly who is mad' A society full of vices and maladies or someone who refuses to toe the line and follow the tenets of society blindly.
