Sashi Kumar's Chrysalis stars Angad Bedi as a journalist named Preet who has been haunted by an interview with a child who describes a recent violent clash between Hindus and Muslims. Preet investigates a convent run by Sister Agatha (Seema Biswas) that houses nuns who are growing senile. He learns that twenty years earlier Sister Agatha allowed the two surviving members of a Sikh family to seek refuge there after their people were slaughtered following the assassination of Indira Gamdhi. The film parallels the day-to-day life in the convent with the actions Agatha took twenty years before.
