Rough Book is a hard look at the education system in India in 2014. Though one of the finest systems in the world, the system has issues which are threatening to clog the channels of learning. The story is told through the eyes of a physics teacher, Santoshi Kumari. Santoshi rebels against the system to fight for her students, so that they can pass the Entrance Examinations to the Indian Institute of Technology. Devoid of any melodrama, almost gentle in its telling, the rebellion of the teacher and her students are internalized to make their point.
