Fireflies is the story of two brothers -- Shiv and Rana. Shiv, a successful banker, lives in the superficial glitter of corporate Bombay, while the younger brother Rana, a law school dropout, gets by restoring vintage motorcycles at a friend's garage in the anonymous shadowy by-lanes of Bombay. Though worldly achievements and illusions briefly illuminate the brothers' journeys, a tragedy that befell them fifteen years ago seems destined to repeat itself, just in newer incarnations. Flames suddenly extinguish again, in an eerie heartbeat... Voices and visions from the past and the magic realism of the years gone by, beckon the brothers to find the picture in the puzzle, scattered so long ago. Fireflies are the recurring theme of the film; those luminous creations that come out of the darkest of darkness, just to light up the imagination of the innocent. They live their fullest, as long as the glow lasts. Even if it is lifetime, being lived a day. Fireflies come out in the night, just to light up the darkness. They live as long as the glow lasts. Even if it is a lifetime, being lived in a day. FIREFLIES is the story of two estranged brothers, Shiv and Rana. Living disparate lives, sometimes illuminated by unexpected intimacies and new found hope, the brothers still remain shackled to the darkness of their past. Haunting memories of a tragic incident must be resolved before they can be brothers again.
