(120 mins)Set amidst the Latin Catholic community in Chellanam beach near Kochi in Kerala, the film revolves around the death of Vavachan, a master mason, who comes home after a lapse of time, and suddenly meets with his death. Before his death, he shares with his son Eeshi, memories about the burial of his father and in turn, his own desire to be buried decently. Eeshi readily promises him a grand burial. After Vavachan’s sudden and shocking departure, Eeshi earnestly arranges for his father’s funeral; he wants it to be performed with due respect, with all the usual rituals, colourful paraphernalia and celebrations that go with it. But this simple gesture of love and respect of a son for his father, meets with unpredictable obstacles and unseemly reactions from different quarters. With this intense, emotional core, the film journeys into the complex web of human emotions.
