Description

In the grungy, cacophonous dressing room of a lower Mumbai theatre, Prahlad, a method actor, struggles to ‘get into character’. When Prahlad’s make-up artist fails to appear, Arushi, a nervous backstage manager, drags her buddy, Sherry, away from the background actors as a replacement to work on the main, frustrated star. Forewarned that he could aggravate Prahlad, Sherry performs his work at a risk. A risk that could have him caught in the crossfire between Prahlad and the rest of the room. A risk, that threatens not only to injure him, but turn him inside out, and relive a past so secret, it could only have hidden backstage.
