The Story:

18 UNUSUAL short stories...

We are brought up listening to and reading stories, which make us form a clichéd framework of expectations and concepts about life. Café Latte takes you on a tantalizing foray into the unusual with some refreshing and some startling stories. A young man, Bikash, is delivered a message through paranormal forces while waiting on the railway platform; A doctor snaps a young man back to life by promising to help him commit suicide. A poor boy, Lokesh, dreams of people at a cinema night show perishing in a fire. Will his desperate attempts to save some lives succeed? 'The Other Side' is the story of a nymphomaniac fighting her desperate craving for sex. 'Smart TV' showcases a smart sales performer, Raj, buying his wife and daughter an expensive TV to cover his affair. 'Code of Honor' is a poignant tale of an army jawaan and his last letter to his son who shuns the army. The stories cover a broad spectrum of people and events and have us turning the pages eagerly for the twist in the end. So shed the mundane, become a fearless traveller and savor a fresh approach towards the enigma called Life.
