Synopsis: 

When a hot lunch is delivered to the wrong desk, a frustrated Mumbai wife finds herself engaging in an intimate, perhaps life-changing correspondence with a complete stranger. Ritesh Batra’s charming, intelligent feature debut is about communication, longing and the good things that can happen when we see accident as opportunity.
