When birth givers are framed as abusers of their infants, would moral reasoning supersede their allegation? The Protector, written by Sudipta Bhawmik, craftily tests the boundaries of parental rights and sheds light on the struggle of immigrant couples. An Indian couple, in their early 20's, settled in the United States, come to terms with the CPS (Child Protection Service), on the account of alleged ill-treatment of their infant. The couple hopelessly stranded in foreign lands, seek the help of their most trustworthy friends, to fight against the rudimentary system, and in the process, regain custody of their child. Does the heat of the plot subside further away from the task at hand, and pave way for demons uncalled for? Find out soon!
