In this small, independently produced feature, Chak has been separated from his wife for some time, and he has a number of sexual and other hang-ups. To add to his emotional burdens, he is unemployed. For one thing, he obsessively entertains fantasies of rape. Nonetheless, he has custody of his young son. This morning, he begins the day by visiting a prostitute friend then goes to see his sister and his mother (a widow). Perhaps even then he has some notion of the tragedy that awaits him.
