Pine Cone’ is a semi-autobiographical film that narrates the story of an out-and-proud filmmaker Sid Mehra falling in love for the first time and over two decades becoming cynical about love.

The backdrop of the story is the changing landscape of queer rights in India: the year 1999, when the first gay pride took place in Kolkata; 2009, when the Delhi High Court decriminalized homosexuality (a ruling overturned in 2012); and finally in 2019 when homosexuality had again been decriminalized by the Supreme Court of India.
