Released in 2013, the film covers the disappearance of over 10,000 men-mostly ordinary civilians, since 1989 in Indian-administered Kashmir. Following 3 generations of women who have been affected by such disappearances of the men in their lives, the documentary presents the story of three spirited women, who continue to cling on to hope: an old woman, a middle aged mother and a young girl.
Shot in Kashmir, the film unfolds the endeavors of Masoud Hussein, art master and university lecturer of art, to find aunt Mugli to learn about her life to complete an artistic piece he is working on. In the end he finds out she was found dead in her room after years of solitude looking at the door with the hope of seeing her son once again.
