Samar Mishra, an LGBT activist and founder of the queer support group “Tulyata,” is found murdered in the dingy by-lanes of Mumbai with no clues left behind. A campaign held in his honour brings together five strangers—an out-of-closet entertainment journalist, a transgender model, a budding politician, a social worker, and a mysterious young man. In the few days leading up to the campaign, their lives are irrevocably changed as they are pulled deeper into the world of grisly politics and secret lives.
