This film is a biopic about Kadambari Devi, who married Rabindranath Tagore’s elder brother, Jyotirindranath. When Kadambari came to the Tagore household, Robi (Rabindranath Tagore) was seven years old and Kadambari was nine. Their relationship soon became wrought with complexities. This tale draws from the influence Kadambari had on Tagore’s works, and the distress he underwent when she committed suicide.
