Harnessing the power of AI technology, futuristic nostalgia becomes a canvas that reflects the complex issues woven into the fabric of Indian society. Conceptually, the series addresses the dichotomies within the developing country, portraying the simultaneous dance between progress and inequality, the balance between the future and the echoes of the past.
