Island City follows three comic-dramatic stories set in Mumbai. The first one is about a middle-aged man who wins the office ‘Fun Committee Award’, which entitles him to a whole day full of fun. He is most reluctant to leave the safety of his cubicle
but he has to. Prescribed fun modules have to be completed and non-compliance is not an option.
The second story begins with a domineering pater familias, Anil, who is on life support. Seeking some relief, his family
decides to buy a TV, which Anil had banned; now every night the family plugs into a popular soap whose hero is a man
ideal in every way…
The third one centres on Aarti whose repetitive existence is slowly making her more and more mechanical and numb. Deep inside ferments a disconnect and unease that she is unable to articulate to anyone. Then one day there arrives a most intimate letter and everything changes.
