It’s a normal day in the Saini household as siblings Kira and Jora are in the midst of their daily video game session. Their mother, Harj, arrives home with groceries, annoyed that the house is still a mess. Shortly after, the doorbell rings to reveal Rani, a well dressed med school graduate of the Sandhu family who have just moved in across the street. Along with a delicious offering of gulab jamun, she invites the Saini family over for dinner. Kira is the only family member not dazzled by Rani’s seemingly perfect disposition. Upon arriving at the Sandhu residence, the Sainis are not only struck by the incredibly beautiful interior, but by the owners: Lina, a beautiful but stern looking woman in all black, and Jag, an inventor who dabbles in artificial intelligence, as illustrated by the home’s technologically advanced items. As chaotic as the Sainis may appear, a glimpse into the Sandhu family’s past shows a very different image from the one they are presenting, and raises more questions than answers when the true nature of their daughter, Rani, is revealed.

Duration: 14mins
