Abhi and Anu live diametrically different lives, far removed from the space each other occupies. Abhi is the average boy next door with a regular job and a lifestyle that borders on the mundane, and is very close and dependent on his mother. Anu is an organic farmer in Ooty — a lively girl, passionate about social issues and unafraid to challenge social responsibility and the stigma around her. They meet, are instantly attracted to each other, and get married on a whim. Subsequently, Anu’s pregnancy augurs the start of a new phase in their lives. It all comes crashing down when their families meet, and a shocking disclosure conspired by a strange twist of fate is revealed. Torn between what the society expects him to do and what his love needs to conquer, Abhi is faced with a life-altering decision.
