Synopsis: This thriller is a tale of tales, where four directors are commissioned for an episodic feature film project by a producer, where each director has to direct a half hour short film based on a story written by them. The producer sets two conditions - they will have to visit him at his bungalow on the outskirts of the city to pitch their respective stories and the common theme of their stories has to be- ‘Death.’ The four film makers, also friends otherwise, set out for this journey along which we see their stories being narrated as the narrators slip into the narratives. However, the bigger story awaits them and their shared past catches up with them. Times of India called this movie an‘eloquence in motion from the beginning to the subtly Hitchcockian twist to the emotional climax.’
