Do Pahar is about an unlikely bond that develops between an elderly, abused woman and a hit man when, curious by nature, she invites him into her house (a perfect place to keep vigil on his target). Yet, while he is a killer, he’s also sympathetic and while she is old and abused, she’s also stubborn and fearless.

As the afternoon progresses, she kindles in him a few forgotten childhood memories while the hit man by his very nature invites her to confess her darkest desires. Just this one afternoon alludes to a lifetime for the two as they break moral stereotypes. While she discovers her ‘knight in shining armor’ in the hit man, he in turn finds in the old woman, his ‘perfect partner in crime’.
