The story follows Agastya Rathore, an ex-crime lord, who gave up on his life of terror to live a good, normal life with his wife - Maya. Their happiness is short-lived as his past catches up and Maya is abducted by the ones whom he wronged. Agastya is troubled with conflicts and regrets, as a much larger scheme unfolds. And the film begins. The story follows Agastya in two timelines. One has him alone in an empty, seemingly endless dry land; clueless, he is guided by music from his past, things that appear and disappear in ways beyond reason as he is moved closer to the man controlling the strings. The music reminds him of last memories - of Maya, his wife who was abducted by a family that rivaled his when he was a crime-lord. He faces conflict as to save his wife, he may need to become what he once was, what Maya changed into who he now is. Do you really live after you lose something you love or do you just pass the days as your soul remains stuck in time? If to save that something, if you change yourself, are you responsible for the duties you leave, the expectations you dishonor because of that change?
