Roya, a middle-class-Muslim woman, is struggling to find herself in the sprawl of urban Bangladesh. Roya performs her last show playing ‘Nandini’ – the epitome of Bengali womanhood and the central character of Rabindranath Tagore’s play ‘Red Oleanders’. As she delves into a psychological journey and battles to reconstruct ‘Nandini’, Roya finds herself under-construction – travelling alone to exert her own desires, wishes and ambitions.
