ID is set in the urban jungle of Mumbai and was produced by by an independent organisation.
Kamal KM said: “This is a film which we made with a lot of friends who are practicing filmmakers based in Mumbai, made without any money, with only the support. This is a film anyone can make, because this film was like made of some good intentions, with strong opinions about our system in which we’re living in, a system which is failing.”
