Anant Vohra is an interior designer. A death in the family—his uncle’s—sows in him a life-long dread of the inevitable demise of his loved ones. Entrapped by this fear, he builds an imaginary world—a retreat—where death doesn’t exist. A place to escape whenever reality becomes overpowering.

Anant feels a sense of relief in his escapes until things begin to change. He discovers a companion in the retreat—a voice that calls itself the ‘Resident’. As the real and the unreal worlds coalesce, Anant struggles with his sanity and fears the possibility of being locked away in the retreat while the Resident takes over. The unreal world begins to influence Anant’s reality as the retreat floating in the abyss reveals a new order—one made by the increasingly tyrannical subconscious.

Echo of the Abyss presents a vivid portrayal of the primal fear of death and mortality, and how it shapes people in different ways. Aarti, Rajat and the Vohras are all trying to deal with the same truth—death. Despite their differences, they are on the same journey—a quest to negate death through life, work, immortality, art, lineage or an imagined world. But is that all?

Is the human condition condemned to await the inevitable, or is there more?
