Shirpa is the story of a childless couple who are trying out everything under the sun to get a child as blessing from lord. Shalu and Shambu, the Marathi couple are suggested by a practitioner that they should feed a goat kid and then after a few days, kill him. This will please the gods and they would be blessed with a child. Shalu and Shambu prepare to do the same. But as they spent time with the kid, they develop a liking for it and are in confusion whether killing such an innocent creature will do them any good.
Shirpa mirrors many unjust practices and believes in our society which stem from our ignorance. Nitin Kamble has made this unique attempt to raise questions regarding our blind faith in customs and rituals which are so much a part of our own living.
