The female-centric web series touches upon the themes of ambition, desire, and struggle for power and vulnerability through the stories of five modern Indian women in Mumbai.
“The series explores the complex journey of working Indian women who are ambitious for power and success but have many other battles to fight too. It’s the story of their daily hustle, the story of their dreams – sometimes buried, sometimes fulfilled,” the director said.
“It’s the story of glass ceilings shattered, and also, of the hearts broken in the process. I have tried to create a world that reflects the realities of urban working women. I hope audiences relate to the characters and find pieces of their own journey reflected in the story,” Alankrita added.”
