In a small town riddled with territorial dispute, a radicalized journalist believes in exposing the atrocities committed against his community. But his beliefs are based on half-truths. As his charade continues and blurs the lines between his professional and personal life, a deathly consequence makes him reflect back on a simpler time when he had not yet succumbed to radicalization.

Movie will be followed by Q & A with  Harshad Nalawade
