Synopsis

In one of the toughest undergrad schools in the world, a film maker infiltrates a complex mindscape of ambition and restless youth. In the hallways of excellence, something sinister is at work – and those who inhabit them, must fight these monsters within.

Our take

Abhay Kumar’s riveting documentary innovatively employs animation to present an account of the despair that haunts even the brightest of academic achievers. This compelling film initiates a critical conversation about the dysfunctional relationship between societal infrastructure and mental health.
