After a romantic drive with a friend, Bindi discovers that her eight-month-old daughter Pinki has disappeared along with her nanny. Thus begins a dramatic journey for a young single mother through the south Indian metropolis and its surrounding slums, where one misfortune after another follows her. This gritty thriller about motherhood also serves as a social critique of gender inequality and lack of social welfare services in contemporary India.
