Synopsis

Rehana, a 37-year-old assistant professor in a private medical college, struggles to keep the harmony between her work and family as she juggles the complex roles of a teacher, doctor, sister, daughter and mother. Her life starts to spiral out of control on a quiet evening when she witnesses a female student storm out of a professor’s office in tears. Meanwhile, she receives a complaint about aggressive behaviour against her 6-year-old daughter. Both incidents leave a searing impact on her. Unable to accept the madness of this society, Rehana embarks on an extraordinary journey to seek justice for her student and daughter, all the while grappling with her ego, sense of morality and repressed anger.
