Two old friends meet as a part of their annual tradition to play a game of chess and talk about their lives. Do they still understand each other as well as they used to, when they were kids?

We shot this film in one of the actors' living room in New Delhi, India at night to set up a moody visual tone.
The camera angles change throughout the conversation between the two characters in order to support the narrative content. Except for the badminton scene, we shot the entire conversation on an 85mm prime lens to help the viewer feel more connected to the characters.
