In a strange, unfamiliar place, Gurjit tries to navigate life with ‘the man’. Homesick,
isolated, yet hopeful, Gurjit tries tackling a mundane existence, and at the same time tries to appease a companion she knows nothing of. What is greater, the distance between her new home and the life she previously lived, or the distance between her and ‘the man’?
