After being shunned by his homophobic father for his sexuality, and his lover for not being a woman, Manob finds himself travelling to the city for a sex change operation. However, as he struggles with his identity, he faces challenges and questions he may not be ready to confront yet.
Hailing from a small Indian town, Tathagata has always believed in telling stories of people from different social backgrounds. People who do not have a voice of their own. His last short films “The Demon” (Doitto) and "Miss Man" has travelled to numerous prestigious international film festivals like BFI Flare, Tallgrass Film Festival, Cheries-Cheris, Wicked Queer, International Documentary and Short Film Festival of Kerala to name a few and has won several awards.
