The film opens with a view on the long corridors of the Taj Palace.
We discover a young man in his twenties. He is handsome, his look is intense. He suddenly starts to run.
We see a similar scene of a young woman. She is in her twenties. Beautiful and full of life. She also start to run.
We begin to realise that both characters are a film projection on a wall.
While the music is creating an emotional crescendo, the camera follows man and woman alternately through the building revealing the beautiful interiors of the Palace.
They finally meet as projections at the beautiful grand staircase. He on the left of the mirror, she on the right. The slow down their run towards the center. Once they meet in the mirror, they physically become real showing their irresistible happiness and love. The energy is positive, the music is involving and they are now ready to exploit the gorgeous scenery of the Taj Palace.
This film was inspired by the terror attacks at the Taj hotel in Mumbai in 2010 with the intension to re-romantisise the buildings walls by warm and positive projections.
