In a schizophrenic patient's hallucination, he personifies his city, society, dreams and aspirations as a lady figure. The lady has no realistic existence, but she is the epicenter of all thoughts. Just like a dream or a thought, she also vanishes in thin air, leaving behind a crude reality where imagination and abstraction finds no place. Only a hope remains, a hope that she will return some day, just as she was, or in a new manifestation.
This is based on a poem rather than a linear story. This is a poetic psychodrama and the flow of the film is as erratic as the psychic pattern of a schizophrenic individual. The randomness of discrete thoughts and their non-realistic cohesion makes the film largely surreal which follows the mantra of 'Psychic Automatism'. Although the film is apparently shown from a man's perspective, it is not his rational brain that tracks the flow of the film. It is the haphazardness of his mind that draws an illusion. The words are interpretations of his subconscious mind, rather than the logical construct of his conscious brain. Expressions of the mind have been depicted mostly through poems, and occasionally through songs and dialogues.
