Poet-turned-director Srijato Bandyopadhyay’s debut movie is a   social drama that sheds light on the intricacies of human relationship. Shanket (Parambrata) is a bank employee who is in love with Kuhu (Priyanka), who runs an NGO called Manobjomin that works for the upliftment of village girls. Kuhu is trying to build a school for the girls but sadly the project stops midway due to a paucity of funds.

This leads to an emotional turmoil between the three characters.
