What is that you can see at night? What is allowed, what is not? What do you become a witness to?

Camera in hand, some women and men from Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Jharkhand venture out to record the experience of nights in small town India. Who is watching and who is being watched? Are nights crafted in silence? Is there still movement, labour that is invisibilised? Who has access to the night? Who hides inside?

The film is born out of a pedagogical collaboration between The Third Eye and its Digital Educators who belong to peri-urban and rural contexts across Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Jharkhand.
