In loving memory of Akshay Goil. Your smile warmed the world :)

Four teenage boys mindlessly dare each other to do things in a game to test their manhood. Unfortunately, one of the boys finds out all too soon that the consequences of their actions can hit all too close to home. This film is based on a true story.

The film was made to bring a very serious issue out of the dark and into the light. The issue is prevalent globally and comes down to each individual making a right or wrong choice. Hiding from the issue will only makes the matter worse. Confronting the matter allows more people to be aware of its severity and be less likely turn a blind eye to the matter.
