Another North Kolkata building being demolished to be made to a shopping mall!” Sounds familiar as a frequent newspaper headline?

But the conflict has its roots much deeper than that. The two characters of our story- the father and son, almost stand for the two sides of a coin. The debate between old and new. The debate between holding on to our roots against welcoming the ‘advancements in technology’! When a sad old man faces his son after learning that he has sold off their old house so that a shopping mall can be made in its place, it leads to an important and relevant dialogue between the two.One that is the need of the hour!
