Aditya watches people around him, busy with their own lives, while he struggles with the feeling of being stuck in a place. Right when he is about to let another day go by, his mother calls home asking him to retrieve something from one of the drawers inside the room.
What was supposed to be a 'done and dusted' activity for him turns into an obsession when he realizes that one of the drawers at the bottom refuses to open.
Aditya and Anu Vaidya, siblings who are stuck at home during the second wave of the pandemic, try to pass their time during an afternoon that seems to go on forever.
The film is about how feeling stuck in place doesn't mean that one is actually stuck in place. It explores the theme of time and isolation; through Aditya, his sister and the objects they interact with. Despite sounding slightly dreary, the film is a light-hearted slice of life.
