Advana Naidu, a 70-year-old widow, invites Taishna Sen, her prospective caretaker, for a casual interaction. The two talk about their hopes, desires and how they came to be where they are. To Taishna, it is an unassuming conversation; until she discovers the similarities she shares with the old woman.
