The Closet People

By Hemanth Deshpande

As the sun starts to set on famous Algebraist Dr. Zoze Rodrigues, he finds a last ray of hope in the form of Nik and just when he decides to let this ray light his home, life takes an unexpected U-turn. His long separated wife, Anu, knocks on his door with a deal that he could have only dreamt about a few years ago. The famous Algebraist is forced to juggle with too many variables in his equation. Will he succumb to Anu’s emotional tactics? Will he choose a life that he loves to live or embrace a life that just wants him to live for others? Can he resist the deal and stand up for his true self? Inspiring and compassionate, The Closet People celebrates life in a unique way, and at the same time anatomizes the challenges faced by two families dealing with a delicate social issue.
