In the present time, Shilpi, Fontwala’s niece, has returned to India after spending two decades as an immigrant in the US to write the story of her uncle, Fontwala. Shilpi discovers what it means for a “complex” script to survive in a digital world and for a person with complex history to try and tell one story. Inspired by the story of typographer and font designer of Indian scripts, Rajeev Prakash.
