Ruiz Pereira (Shah) returns to his native Goa and visits the old mansion where he spent his youth. The film nostalgically evokes in flashback the hybrid Portuguese-Indian colonial world in terms of adolescent passions and complicated wedding arrangements. Intended as a Bergman-like saga of a family, using extensive quotations from his filmmaking style including candle-lit sequences as the entire family sits down to a festive dinner. Goa’s best-known pop singer Remo Fernandes wrote the number Panch vorsam in Konkani for this film, but it was actually used in an adapted Hindi version.
