Story/Synopsis: A simple, honest and liberal Muslim teacher was appointed for Ria, the protagonist of the film. Her father, a resident of Kolkata and a representative of the upper middle class, held her (teacher) with high esteem. Ria`s bonhomie with the teacher made them relieved, as they were in search of a good teacher for quite a long time. Everything went on well till the day the unnecessary outrage by Muslims demanding the immediate exit of Bangladesh author Taslima Nasreen took place. Her identity as a teacher was shifted. The baby, Ria, is the mirror here that exposed the pseudo secular character of the so called educated middle class society.
