Speaking about the movie, the writer and director Atanu Ghosh said, “Many people are on the run throughout their lives, desperately seeking a place to settle down, and live peacefully and securely. But in this rootless age, the concept of home has become tarnished and elusive. Pratiksha, 27, finds her life trapped in a vortex of lies, deceit, and danger in London. She traverses from one world to the other, meeting an intriguing and mysterious Ayesha (Anindita Bose), an unpredictable bohemian, Srikanta Munshi (Kaushik Ganguly) and a rashly impulsive Aritro Chatterjee (Shaheb Bhattacherjee) ready to play the dice with his own life! Ultimately, the four characters have no option but to face the most challenging encounter of their lives.”
