Two strangers, an everyman and a rich man, involve themselves in a discussion - which of Capital punishment and Life imprisonment is more humane, or inhumane - that turns into an argument which in turn, turns into an egotistic war of words, finally leading to... a bet.
The conditions? The everyman locks himself up in a room without a phone, internet or human connection and counts down 15 years, at the end of which period he stands to win more money than he could ever dream of. Failure would mean the rich man wins the argument and his money and ego stay undepleted. Based on Anton Chekhov's short story of the same name, ''The Bet'' takes an unflinching look at the human psyche, deconstructs it at the level of ambition and ego and lays bare the souls of two individuals inhabiting disparate worlds of thought, in a thriller-drama format.

"Stayed at the amazing Jungle Wood Resort in Coorg, literally in the middle of a Jungle. The house is a 200 year old house managed by a family who has been running this for years. The silence, peace and 'no phone service' makes you feel so connected to the nature. Highly recommended if you just wanna run away! Huge shoutout to @townista. This was my first #TownistaTrip. Brilliantly arranged and such a hassle free experience. Much recommended if you are planning your next trip."
