Synopsis: is an emotional journey of Natasha Merchant (Huma) and Kabeer Merchant (Saqib) dealing with the death of their parents, Alex Merchant (Adil Hussain) and Lisa Merchant (Lisa Ray) a decade ago.
Natasha believes that it’s the paranormal mirror, which is responsible for their deaths and is adamant to prove her brother’s innocence to the world, who has been in a juvenile correctional facility for 10 years, as an accused in the murder of his parents.
The only thing on her mind, as the brother comes out of the correctional facility, after a decade, is to redeem him of the crime and prove that it’s the mirror, which has caused the deaths. Kabeer does not agree with his sister Natasha’s theory and believes that he killed their father while saving himself.
Join the Merchant family on a revelation through time as we alternate between the past and the present to uncover the truth. Illusions, bizarre occurrences and the presence of someone in Alex’s study certainly cast doubt on the credibility of the mirror. Alex’s alleged affair with Ana, a seductive and passionate woman in his study, who convinces Alex that he is capable of accomplishing a lot but being held back by his incompetent family – and Lisa’s resolve to protect her children through his phases of madness – are these the signs of a dysfunctional family or a haunted mirror wreaking havoc in their lives?
Witness a world where the past and the present merge, a paranormal world where the brother and sister are gradually trapped, a world of deception where the illusion and reality cease to be any different. It’s an experiment where the paranormal takes charge defying science or any logic.
Sometimes the past is best left undisturbed, untouched and in the past. But then again… Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
