A young man Lalit Ghosh, 28, decides to come-out to his Parents. He is in love with a man, his very own room partner, Ashutosh Gautam. He plans his day by cooking his father’s favorite dish, the traditional fish curry (Maacher Jhol) and that by learning from a famous radio cook show. He prepares the dish with effort and serves his father the delicious fish curry and confronts his sexuality over the dinner table.

The family accepting an individual being a homosexual is a difficult task, specially for parents. The societal structure and prejudices related to homosexuality is huge around us, specially in Indian societies. Acceptance of one’s sexuality by their closed ones matters a lot to an individual.

Will Lalit’s dad love the delicious fish curry?
