The teaser features discriminatory comments passed against a Scheduled Tribe (ST) woman and instances of police brutality.

The teaser hints at a gripping legal drama.

Apart from being well-known in the legal circles for some of his landmark judgements, he is also known for his book Listen to My Case! When Women Approach The Courts of Tamil Nadu, where he recounts the stories of 20 women.
