Synopsis

13-year-old Junaid, visits his ancestral Nawabi Haveli in Lucknow, over a family reunion for a wedding. Born and raised in UK, this is Junaid's first visit to India, along with his overbearing parents, which soon turns into a roller coaster ride for him. From having his first smoke, to falling madly in love and getting his heartbroken, he goes through all the rites of passage a teenager goes through in the bittersweet, coming of age phase. But the underlying rot of patriarchy in his extended family hits him the hardest. And when it ends up affecting him directly, the sheltered, naive Junaid who, at first was completely enamoured by his Nawabi lineage, shuns this cycle of chauvinistic morality and finally turns from a boy to a man!
