Film details


A group of people meet in a storm-lashed mansion, for one night, and reveal their joys and sorrows, fears and expectations. A bigger storm rages within the house than the one outside, as the people reveal themselves and the audience is able to judge them for themselves. The characters include a "dacoit", an orphan girl and her "husband", a young woman about to be married, a painter/poet, and a money-lender.
