One fine day, he inadvertently brings home a DVD with a Jean-Luc Godard film inside. Although his friends are disgusted, Ananda is drawn to Godard’s film and gradually develops an obsession. He launches the idea of ​​organizing a film festival in their village where Godard’s films will be screened. The festival comes together after a lot of drama, but what happens next is something else… “We can change the culture of this village.” Featuring Choudhury Bikas Das like Ananda, with Sudhasri Madhusmita, Dipanwit Dashmohapatra, Swastika Choudhuryand Abishek Giri.
