A RAY of Light' is a moving story of how an ordinary man came to be associated with a giant of cinema—Satyajit Ray—and became the photo-chronicler of his creative and personal world. It also pays tribute to the elegance of black-and-white films and the nuances of analogue photography. The life of an octogenarian photographer in his dear city, Calcutta, the various elements of photography as an art form, and the world of Satyajit Ray as viewed by a friend and admirer have all been brought together in the film in the form of a touching human narrative.
