Some memories should never die.
Rathin lives in his room and in his mind. He’s stuck in a constant rewind of memories that cannot be relived — except by buying the time and company of role-playing actors who can satisfy this longing.
The present time and space is irrelevant.
He’s lonely for time, and company — both of which can be bought. He finds fulfilment in recreating moments that consumed him, took his breath away, moments of love, comfort, song and poetry.
He refused to let his memories fade away.
Constantly reliving his feelings and emotions, and responding to his history and memory with a retrospective feedback loop? That’s a crazy game, but he has nothing to lose.
Here, he enlists two women to recreate the most important roles in that time of his life, and they bring him back to life.
‘One Amongst Many’ screened at the Cannes Short Film Corner and received a special mention at the Kolkata International Film Festival.
