Living in the stark, cutaway corners of Simla, Maya Devi has given up on life and living, choosing instead to live out her days consumed by pain and regret.
Schoolgirls Ira and Ana decide to add colour to her life and pose as her secret admirer, sending her anonymous letters. What begins as a seemingly harmless prank soon spirals out of control and shapes each of their lives in ways they least expected.
The deeply meditative and emotionally affecting film explores notions of friendship, the pain of holding onto the past and above all how one event can define us for years to come.
