Venkata Kiran Kumar Kallakuri of Adwitiya Movies, who also backed Raj Madiraju’s Grey, is the producer of the film.

The film’s trailer, launched yesterday, offers a glimpse of the film’s world. An elderly couple takes to social media to stay in touch with their family. They enjoy the instinctive nature of social media and take pride in being tech-savvy with the help of their grandchild. However, their world turns upside down soon and they take a drastic decision that threatens to alienate them from their family.

What are the elderly couple upto and why do they contemplate suicide? Raj Madiraju doesn’t reveal much about the conflict but does just enough to draw the attention of viewers.
