In the walled city of Old Delhi, a reclusive shopkeeper spends his days obsessively watching people through hidden closed-circuit cameras. When he overhears how a boy is beaten, he begins a desperate search for the child. As he becomes lost in the labyrinthine alleys of the city and the recesses of his mind, he starts to lose his grasp on reality until he comes across a shocking truth. Director Dipesh Jain wrote this story to express the personal fears he'd experienced as a child.
