This film was born out of the angst that even in the 21st century, in a city as liberal and safe as Mumbai, women’s access to public space is limited and largely relegated to the sphere of purposefulness. But what happens when one just wants to be? Can a woman ever access public space as freely and completely as a man? The film brings out, amongst other things, the experiences of a young Muslim girl, who grapples with such notions and talk in a sense, of a universal experience of all women, and addresses what the filmmakers see as a need to just experience the city purposelessly and in doing so, the need to reclaim, or perhaps claim for the first time, an unfettered access to public space.
