A champion race jockey, a multi millionaire, and a simple village girl, these three characters and the rustic villagers of Kariyoor are so apart and distant that they don’t know each other until one day their lives change when fate brings them on a direct collision course. The ensuing screenplay is a race of action, stunts, and events that roller coaster though high emotion, pain, love, betrayal and sacrifice.
