This short fiction film deals with the element of a man’s distorted perception of reality in the backdrop of a strained married life. The dialogue-oriented, character-driven script deals with the concept of embedded curiosity in human nature. The story revolves around a childless married man and his internal conflict when he feels attracted towards a young girl living next door. This conflict is fuelled by what his wife tells him about the girl and the advances the girl makes to tell him something else in turn. The story is primarily told from his perspective as he goes through this moral dilemma. The perspective is turned upside down in the climax by introducing a twist about his wife.
