A successful Delhi businessman takes his daughter on a surprise trip, back to his childhood hometown. Suppressed family issues come up, when all of the six family members have to confront their fractured past and their fragile dreams of success, wealth and happiness.
Set against the backdrop of the warm, colorful skies of the Kite Festival in the Old City of Ahmedabad, this debut feature beautifully and unpretentiously captures the pulse of intricate Indian family dynamics. Features scintillating performances by Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Seema Biswas.
