Atasi was declared mad by her family and admitted to a mental hospital. Once out of the mental hospital, she fell in love and ‘plotted’ her own recovery. She had a story to tell - not only a story of love in the time of madness but also that of a dysfunctional family in an odd little house in Kolkata.  Rather than objectify her as a victim, a mental health patient, I chose to let her voice burst through. She had a special intimacy with the camera and when she was filming with us it was as if she was exorcising the ghosts of her past.
