A delicate – and improbable -- love story about three gentle and shy souls. Snehamoy, a school teacher in the beautiful Sunderbans, writes letters to Miyage, a sweet, shy Japanese girl in Yokohama. Over these letters, they fall in love and get married, despite having never met. Sandhya, a widow, takes refuge in Snehamoy’s home and is soon always by Snehamoy’s side, bringing a piquant twist to this home in the Sundarbans and the love between Snehamoy and Miyage. Will Sandhya find her solace with Snehamoy? Or will life finally unite Snehamoy and Miyage.
