Jayshankar Sundari was a popular female impersonator of the Gujarati stage in early 20th century Bombay. Basing itself on a play by Anuradha Kapur, and looking at the work of eminent painters Bhupen Khakkar and Nilima Sheikh, the film articulates the process of his journey from boy to man and simultaneously from male to female. Through his story the film explores ideas of femininity and performance, in the context of contemporary gender discourses and politics of acting.
