That Man in the Picture Poster.jpg

The Police have found a CCTV footage of a harassment-turned-murder. In the footage, apart from the two culprits and the victim, one strange figure is also visible. A man standing in a corner, looking at the crime happening but not coming forward to help. Mr. Joshi identifies himself! He hides all the proofs that the man in the picture is him. From here on, begins the struggle to fight his guilt. He faces a range of reactions, right from people abusing ‘That man’ for being a coward, to people giving a lecture on how they would have helped the victim, had they been in his place. Mr.Joshi’s guilt trip comes to a tragic end, where it doesn’t really gives an easy answer to the problem, rather it underlines the whole question itself.
