    • Synopsis
    • "Men and women cannot subsist on the scanty satisfaction which they extort from reality" - Sigmund Freud

      Karan is pushed by Tenzin to live a more interesting life and thereby save their relationship. He takes to roaming the city at night in search for exciting stories. He encounters Anushka, a strong-willed, solitary executive, who has her own tales to tell. Tenzin, a dancer, in the meanwhile, is in pursuit of a similar dream; by virtue of driving her body to a limit in order to gain perfection and the approval of, Xavier, her vain-glorious and exacting dance instructor. Karan’s stories to Tenzin grow progressively more fantastical and Tenzin’s reports of her progress remain steadfast in their positivity. Their realities however, seemingly lie a few shades apart. We follow them, across a vast characterless metropolis of Gurgaon, as these shades of difference, artfully employed to cover the banality of their existences, take on a life of their own and the lines between fact and fiction blur into irrelevance.
