Merging reality with fiction, dreams, memories, fantasies and anxieties, the film depicts a story of forbidden love between two young girls through a series of letters found at the Film and Television Institute of India. Through their epistolary relationship, we not only discover a romance cut short by the unforgiving caste system, but also glimpse the drastic changes taking place around them, the university strikes and the rebellious spirit of Indian youth.
