The film begins with the end—Kadambari Devi’s suicide. And then goes back to the beginning—when she first stepped into the Tagore household in Calcutta’s Jorasanko as the child bride of Rabindranath Tagore’s elder brother Jyotirindranath. And then embarks on the diff­icult journey of trying to recreate one of the most enigmatic real-life love stories—the relationship between the poet as a young man and his sister-in-law, the muse of much of his works.
