Amidst the murkiness of contradictions of gender inequality and sexual hypocrisy of the modern-day Kerala society that is struggling to keep up the image of a “almost” developed, educationally- and culturally-evolved society, this film tells the story of a mother going through the emotionally shattering experiences of anguish and anxiety while bringing up her daughter who is growing out of adolescence into womanhood. With an objective to translate the complexities of coming into age into a cinematic form, the film aims to provoke reflections about the much-educated Keralean society and its forbidden perception towards cognizant sex education.
