Parzania is set against the backdrop of the Gujarat riots which took place after the Godhra incident.
The plot centres around a Parsi family which loses their son in the horrible riots that took place after Godhra and how the family deals with the crisis. It is based on the true story of Dara Modi's family.
It is refreshing, in the sense that it talks very honestly and openly about the situation in Gujarat at that time. In fact, the movie was not screened in Gujarat because of the same reason.
