Description

Calcutta, 1967: Unnoticed by his family, Supratik has become dangerously involved in political activism. Compelled by an idealistic desire to change his life and the world around him, all he leaves behind, before disappearing, is a note. At home, his family slowly begins to unravel - the once-thriving family business implodes and destructive secrets are unearthed. And all around them the sands are shifting as society fractures. This is a moment of turbulence, of inevitable and unstoppable change.
