Set in picturesque Kashmir during winter, Barff is a thriller which spans over one night. Desperate parents of an ailing child and an unsuspecting doctor are the three lives caught in the whirlwind of conflicting questions of truth, reality and belief. Barff raises many questions - is truth what we all experience together or we all have our own different truths? Does truth lead to belief or it's the belief which constructs the truth?

This gripping Hindi thriller by Saurabh Shukla questions truth and belief which takes the protagonist on a journey to find 'truth of the other side.'
