A young Tamil woman living in Calcutta named Shobha grapples with unknown tensions in her four-year-long marriage with her often absent journalist husband Sekhar. She develops a complex relationship with her new neighbors, a sick mother and her middle-aged son, a Tamil man named Manohar. After offering to take care of his mother, Shobha and Manohar become closer but she discovers he has a mysterious past preventing their romance. As this takes place, Sekhar is reporting on the local rock scene with a rookie journalist named Divya. She is an uninhibited and sophisticated Bengali girl who knows how seductive she can be and Sekhar finds himself lost in her charms. As the tensions mount, the four find their relationships soon begin to unravel.
Set in the fascinating city of Kolkata, a place rich with culture and nature, the film explores themes such as guilt and redemption, desires and sexuality in the context of an Indian marriage.
