Synopsis

Shadows is a love story with a difference. The lovers fall in love at first sight but they reserve their opinion for the life to come. They want to understand each other, to fathom the depth of their love for each other and to ensure dignified attitude for each other. There is dilemma in the boy's mind whether it is obligatory to marry the girl one loves. But for the girl, love is her whole existence. They are separated for some years. At last, they meet in a train when the girl is with her husband and a two-three years old child. During the night they recall the days, in a sort of fantasy, when they loved each other but, at the same time, had reservations about each other. The dichotomy of their minds cost them dear.
