The creative eye goes deeper than the mechanics of eyesight. Blind painter Bijon Basu now late in his life, he resides peacefully in the village of ‘Ekla’, where he is admired for his character and talents. His life is interrupted by a proposal to create a mural for an exclusive restaurant in the city of Kolkata, a journey that brings young strong-minded painter Tithi into his life. Their relationship unfolds through the lines of the mural, as they struggle between generations and life philosophies. Bijon’s once clear lines of artistic integrity are troubled by Tithi’s realism, as he grapples with his role and responsibility towards the life of his work beyond the brush.
