Winter’s here and this is smog engulfing the city…
Foggy nights and mornings and blankets are back. A winter night in a city alley, Howrah, India.
Happenstance is a story of a dysfunctional family and some incidents that may appear to be connected at first, but when traced back, prove that life is nothing but a paradigm of circumstances, one leading to the other. The very fact that one timid incident may turn your life upside down, or that, one small truth,when revealed can prove to be detrimental have been shown through this film. It all starts when a girl mysteriously returns to her family after an year and is reluctant to talk about her whereabouts. Her brother, though relieved at first begins to delve into her past after his sister unknowingly, or probably willingly starts making her moves a little too curious for her brother’s comfort.
