The master director Onir presents an Indian anthology work that consists of four short films: Omar, Afia, Abhimanyu, and Megha. Based on a common theme of fear, each film tackles real-life issues and dilemmas that bruise modern Indian society.
Interwoven characters sensitively explore themes of child abuse, gay rights, Kashmiri Pandits and sperm donation. The struggle for identity and dignity is presented through swift and intelligent storytelling.
