The movie’s fulcrum is hinged upon the notion of the enduring taboos around menstruation in India. In hindsight, we can also see other prevalent issues like the atrocities a women has to go through in rural India.

Sharing his thoughts and his experience on working in this short film Girish Kumar says ” Menstruation is a natural process of the human body. It is time to get rid of those taboos attached to it and treat the issue maturely. This short film has trained the spotlight on the adversities women face in villages with regard to personal hygiene I feel gratitude on working on such a project that takes up such issues that many still hesitate talking about ”

The movie is about the happening at the gavkars, a temporary place for women to stay in, when they are menstruating. A gavkar is nothing but a cowshed. Girish is seen in the role of a photo journalist who tries to help the protagonist the young village girl who escapes the evil hands of the village chief.
