My primary goal is to convey the message through the story is that, when an idea of struggle got connected by a ray of dream then it turns out to be an exemplary story without any care for recognition. A lady whose whole life revolve around a dream that is to live in her own house with her children. A house where she need not to worry about the safety of her teenage daughter, a house where she doesn’t care about the taunts of her mother. This could be a very small thing for us but for a lady who is fighting a war with the society just to make it real, is a life longing dream. An individual and a woman and a Dalit and an Indian want something and are ready to go to any level to attain it. We want to show the dreams of people who has no brand value for the society but still their struggle, their hopes, their stories need to be heard because stories never dies, ideas never get extinct, they always live through some person or in a character or may be in a film.
