It's Manto against the whole world whose writings some people failed to connect with. But that does not daunt the writer's determination who is bent on showing what is real. Manto questions filtering his thoughts about what is persistent in society. The teaser is packed with his emotional ordeal, sense of humour and disappointment on the prospect of Partition. His protest against the society norms costs him his family's happiness and the writer's tiff with his wife (played by Rasika Dugal) is proof.
