Yash Sawant's, A Cold Summer Night, is a classic narrative fiction that perfectly captures the social imbalance caused by a life changing moment for a young migrant man. Ketan, works away from home, within a tight knit community and within this moment of chaos he gets exposed as a lyer and a cheat. The more involved and angry the community get, the deeper Ketan withdraws.
