Award-winning director Aparna Sen delivers a moving and insightful exploration of the impact of schizophrenia on a young woman and her family in today's Calcutta. Sen elicits powerful performances from a celebrated cast including Shabana Azmi, Waheeda Rehman, Soumitra Chatterjee, Rahul Bose and Konkona Sen Sharma as Meethi. The narrative pivots around the relationship of two sisters, older sister Anjali (Shabana Azmi) is a successful professor with a powerful personality. She is the anchoring rock for her family and carer for her sister Meethi whose progression into schizophrenia has been speeded up by traumatic experiences.
Anjali has always dominated the life of her attractive younger sister, and jealously warded off Meethi's handsome fiancé Jojo (Rahul Bose) with fear of Meethi's impending illness. Years later when Meethi and Anjali are on holiday in the Hills there is a chance meeting with Jojo, now with his new wife and children. He is shocked to discover that Meethi does not now recognize him, but lives in a world visited by an imaginary husband and children of her own.
