The film was showcased at several international film festivals and received critical acclaim for its heart-warming storyline and powerful performances. The movie revolves around the life of a mother, Mita (played by Deepti Naval), who loses her son Imran in a car accident in Kolkata. The news of her son's death comes as a shock to Mita, who lives in Delhi and had a strained relationship with her son. She decides to travel to Kolkata to attend the last rites of her son and to collect his belongings.

Mita reaches Kolkata to find that Imran was living with his male partner Nobi (played by Rituparno Ghosh) and had a different lifestyle that was unbeknownst to her. Mita is taken aback by the sudden revelation and finds it hard to come to terms with the fact that her son was gay. She also discovers that Imran had left behind several secrets that she was not aware of, which leads to her questioning her relationship with her son.

As Mita tries to find closure and understand Imran's life, she begins to develop a bond with Nobi. Nobi, who is also struggling to cope with the loss of Imran, opens up to Mita and shares his memories of Imran. The two find solace in each other's company and gradually come to terms with Imran's death.

Raima Sen plays the role of Ahana, a mutual friend of Mita and Nobi, who also shares memories of Imran with them. Ahana is a free-spirited woman who is not afraid to speak her mind and helps Mita understand her son's personality and beliefs.

The movie captures the essence of grief and the struggle to cope with the loss of a loved one. It also highlights the need for acceptance and tolerance towards diverse lifestyles and choices that people make.
