"In the whole discussion around Section 377 and homosexuality in India, the emphasis on affective relationships and the roles they play in people's life is missing", Kohli said.

Rishi Raj, one of the subjects of the documentary, says, "The idea is to show how ordinarily extraordinary love is. That's it. Love is just an emotion. It is genderless."
