As Megha wakes up in the dead of night to the squeaking of thewoodshed door, she steps out to see the cause behind it. What shewitnesses is something so dangerous, so sinister that she is soonracing through the deserted streets of Palgaum, with only one thingon her mind: to put as much distance as she can between herselfand the place she has come to call home for the past year, for hervery family members-husband and mother-in-law-are plottingto burn her alive that very night!

What will she do now? Where will she go?

Making her way through the dim-lit streets, there is only one namethat comes to her mind-Kunal, the one man who has shownher friendship and respect in her new household. Hiding in hisapartment, he becomes her protector. As the forbidden attractionbetween them grows and complicates an already messy situation,will Kunal be successful in safeguarding Megha?

Torn between her affections for Kunal and the conventional ethos of the society, which path will she choose?
