The short film, starring Shahana Goswami and Gulshan Devaiah, has been written and directed by Radhika, and is centred on the subject of sleepwalking.

On why she took up such a subject, she had said: “What the film is about does not really come across in the trailer, so I can’t really give it away. I started diving last year and that’s where I got the idea.”
