In a once-grand, now down-at-its-heels bungalow in a South Delhi colony lives Naina with her mother, sister, and the stigma that madness ‘runs in the family’.When a woman’s face peeps in from the mists of her childhood memories, Naina sets out in search of the truth behind her father’s disappearance. Then comes a call that begins to unspool the past.


People on our Roof is a portrait of one woman’s undying commitment to her kin; her struggle withrelationships and a heart-wrenching story of indestructible love between two people. A coming of age story, it also explores the world of people whose minds are wired differently.
