As per reports the story is set in an elite boarding school in a small Himalayan hill town. It talks about Mira, a 16-year-old, whose coming-of-age saga is hijacked by her mother. Mother and daughter grow up together through the course of the script and their fraught but ultimately loving relationship is the beating heart of the film reported India Today.
“It’s honest awkwardness will make you chuckle, not weep. It’s full of relatable, lived-in episodes that one finds oddly satisfying – like popping a zit. The mother in our story routinely dodges the self-sacrificing stereotype of the typical Indian mom – she’s complicated, grey, and not a martyr,” the actor Richa Chadha said in a statement.
Sanjay Gulati of Crawling Angel Films and Claire Chassagne of French banner Dolce Vita Film will be co-producing the film.
