Film synopsis: 
An old man, Zoology Professor Kuhel Ahmed, faces death. The things happening in his life is quite normal for anyone. But, how is it to himself? What happens to his inner self, in his consciousness, in his thoughts at that moment in life when the living people are wistful about their long life and the dead are only memory to him? He is a loner in the middle of a bridge; helpless in his tension. All barriers of control break loose; things fall apart for him. Professor Ahmed is not a psychologically challenged person. He is absent-minded, reticent as a character. However, thoughts are not always limited to expression only. Thoughts are restless, always on the move. Professor Ahmed looks back into the satisfactions of his life’s achievements as well as the real pictures for all his shortcomings. He is nostalgic as the certainty of end of life awaits him. Professor Ahmed is single as he defies leaving behind a generation. He knows all the patterns of human diversity like his palms. Life, to him, is nothing but carrier of a mathematical progression. This belief popped into him through the practices of science. He knows beyond this belief human race is going through this progression as they try to mask the superstition of heredity and surroundings. Therefore, he argues at the close of his life. Life’s meaning as well as absurdity equally fights within him. Such inner conflict is apparently unseen, unreal. But in man’s own world it is evident and real. This feature film tries to explore that real image of the human race crossing the limits of individuals. Memory and present; everything becomes contemporary. Insights into life is framed in every millisecond.
