Tea and biscuits are being passed around and They are boasting about her husband's new upcoming business venture in Los Angeles. They pause to ask Aparna if she will be able to Manage the house on her own during that time. She makes an awkward smile and obediently replies "no problem" and silently looks at an old wedding picture of them on the wall.
Further into the day, she is done preparing dinner in her nightgown. She checks on her 2 year old son, puts him to sleep. her husband, who is seen wearing a comfortable Kurta, his back is facing her as he sits on the couch, watching tv. She watches from a distance as she folds a few clothes. No words are exchanged between them.
She goes to bed on her own.
The next morning she wakes up because of the alarm. She checks the time and says "SHIT!" And she hurries to get to work. The house is much smaller, yet more colorful
The tempo is high and energetic, she is much more attractive and seems confident. She reaches for the car keys, clumsily forgets her mobile and goes back to get it.
She is talking to her friend while driving hands free. She is laughing about some guy she met last night at the bar
She reaches work and her boss reminds her she is late. She pretends to look at her watch, says sorry, jokes and runs inside the auditorium
The camera follows her inside, into a theatre with a packed audience facing her. She is just in time to grab the spotlight
She grabs the microphone and delivers a joke and there is a roar of laughter. The audience seem to love her
She thanks the audience and goes backstage where all her colleagues and friends congratulate her for nailing the deliveries. She is evidently blushing, someone in the crowd says "Oh my god, look at her blush!"
She wakes up because of the sound of her baby crying. Her husband is sleeping at a distance from her with his back turned to her. "Go check on what's her problem now" he murmurs.
She slowly walks to the other room where the baby is. She stops to look at herself in the mirror. There is a faint voice of people in a crowd still laughing.
Scene shifts back to the auditorium, she is about to leave the stage when she sees a guy in the audience making eye contact with her, they both share a smile . He looks just like her husband.
She thanks the crowd and leaves the stage blushing, she can hear someone say "Oh my god, look at her blush!"
