The(ir) Blurb...

50-year-old Ehsaan runs a tea stall in Krishan Nagar, Lahore. He is a quiet person, disinterested in life, with no social interaction - whether with customers at the stall, or with his family at home. For some time, he has been noticing a male couple, who have become regular customers at his tea stall. Their casual behaviour makes him very disturbed and angry. One day, this anger manifests as a violent reaction, leaving Ehsan in a mix of guilt and nostalgia.
