About the film
People who can’t be moulded into the stereotypes that society has set, often find it difficult to make a place for themselves in the same society. Hailing from a small town in India, Artika believes herself to be modern, liberal and most importantly, independent. Not the one who shies away from speaking her mind. She struggles to find a place to stay in Mumbai, overcoming the clichéd remarks of being a “single working girl living alone”. However, an unprecedented encounter with a transgender sex worker opposite her house, questions her beliefs. Will she now fall into the same societal prejudices that she has been fighting against?
