About the film: This film revolves around Shikha, Rupashi and Seema who was forcibly admitted by their family to a public mental hospital in Calcutta, twenty years ago. They have been living there ever since they have been separated from and neglected by their families who never visit them. This is a story about the three sisters' madness, their longing for familial love, and their tremendous grace and dignity in the face of denial of that love.
