In a desolate landscape ruled by a fascist regime, Feroza and Aditya, a typically mismatched couple, embark on a quest to unravel life's meaning, love, and politics. The story delves into their relationship non-linearly, as a strict law limits daily word usage to 140. Feroza, a public prosecutor, and Aditya, a music artist, struggle to communicate amid the law's anxieties, questioning if they can overcome the chaos in their dynamics. The play explores the politics of love between a man and a woman, confronts an activist and a state representative, and challenges the privileges in engaging with marginalised struggles. The totalitarian law's impact on society and individual minds is evident, prompting an inquiry into the true meaning of "personal is political." Through Aditya and Feroza's flawed relationship, the play reflects the fragmented reality of contemporary times.
