The film aims to highlight the issues and concerns of male-to-female transgender people in India through discussions, interviews, studies, and the performing arts. It shows not just the struggles and sufferings of transgender persons, but also mirrors their tenacity to survive against all odds. Inspired largely by the personal experiences of a SAATHII staffer in Kolkata, the film tells the story of several transgender heroes across India. Apart from serving as a sensitization and planning tool in the hands of social workers, program planners, and policy makers, the film has also motivated transgender individuals to overcome self-stigma and oppressive social barriers that prevent them from realizing their true potential.
