Dr. SOMSHANKAR ROY, a social scientist, engages two young people SWAGATO and ANWESHA to create ‘mock’ crisis on the streets. The aim was to observe reactions of people to different forms of crisis happening around them, and to analyse and derive conclusions on Bystander effect from them. Anwesha is a post-graduate in sociology and comes from a well-to-do family. She is engaged to JOY, a celebrity singer. Swagato hails from a middle-class family, has a diploma in journalism but never got a decent job. Swagato has a steady relation with RUPA, who resides in a colony. Days back, Rupa’s mother has been diagnosed to be suffering from cancer. Now they are in acute crisis as Rupa’s mother is the only earning member of the family. PRATIM GUHA, a blind writer of love stories learns about Dr. Roy’s experiment, finds it quite interesting and involves himself with the project in pursuit of a plot. Pratim is dynamic and wants to live life on his own terms. But he is also intensely romantic and emotional. He lends yet another dimension to the curious relationship developing between the six people, namely Somshankar, Anwesha, Swagato, Joy, Rupa and Pratim. But all theories and deductions go astray when one of them suddenly goes missing and the rest cannot decipher whether the crisis is mock or real.
