Questions have to be answered and truth looks right into their eyes when a thief, a mere child driven by hunger and deprivation, breaks into the home of a middle class family.

Synopsis: 
Time gives and time takes away. Astitwa is a story of loneliness, a story of remembrance, a story of love, of life and loss. It takes us into the world of man encompassed by grief and clutching on to memories that torment him and imprison him in a world away from reality.

For centuries, the goat has reigned supreme in the Bengali kitchen, be it by the shores of Kolkata or in the suburbs of America. A sudden disappearance of goat meat causes a stir in the pot of quandary, jealousy and elections: a theme that finds resonance in the lives of Prabashi Bengalis, in their weekend social gatherings, hidden behind exuberant menus, in between cocktails of gossip and politics, and the rivalries that ebb and flow.
