SYNOPSIS

On the brink of adolescence, young Pankaj is caught between the confines of a strict patriarchal society and his own desires. Mesmerised by the beautiful costume and dance of a girl in his school play, he determines to play the role himself—hoping to get closer to one of the older students in the process.
