    • Synopsis
    • After many anxious years Hermoni, mother of Mukti who had left home to join an extremist outfit is handed a mutilated bullet ridden body purportedly that of her son. The formal last rites are performed. Then comes the news that the body may not be Mukti’s. Thus begins another long wait as Hermoni rekindles her hope that her son will return home in person.

      In company with Hermoni is Sewali, Mukti’s childhood companion with whom he had sought to share his life. She is a woman now. Her love for Muki is unflinching. She is waiting.

      And, there is Biplob. He had returned from the outfit to lead a normal life. His past prevents the return of normalcy.

      The trio go on living. Nourishing in a hidden corner of their hearts that their hopes and dreams will indeed be fulfilled some day.
