This uplifting musical follows the journey of Tora (Ishaa Saha), a girl from the suburbs of Kolkata, to her marital home in London.
Tora is in dissonance with the high-flying lives of her NRI doctor husband Ribhu and her council-woman mother-in-law Shanta, and thus starts searching for solace outside the bounds of her home.
This is when Imran (Parambrata Chattopadhyay), a consummate musician from India, enters her life, making the caged bird inside her sing again and embrace life on her own terms.
The film closely portrays the lives of Bengalis in London and the alienation that is felt by a new immigrant from abroad.
Yet the city of London, somehow, subsumes one with time and becomes home to the lost souls.
