Ignoring all the reproaches and words of caution, they have been living together for quite some time. Rupsa is making a documentary on the public perception of same-sex relationships in India. For that reason she has to meet a lot of people - some supportive of the issue, some dismissive, and others apprehensive of it. Meanwhile, Ranja's mother comes to stay with them. She has always been a little uneasy with the idea of her daughter's being in love with another woman. Their domestic help, Lakkhir ma, also seems to be wary of this relationship. This film explores the lives and outlooks of these four characters in the context of a growing awareness about same-sex relationships in India. The film is interspersed with real-life interviews of people belonging to various sections of the society, who express their views on many related concerns and share their experiences of humiliation and anxiety. The film does not attempt at answering all the questions it raises, but presents the multifaceted nature of the debates around the subject.
