Suffocating in the small-town world of his parents, Vijay is desperate to escape to the raw energy of Bombay. His chance arrives unexpectedly, when the family servant, Raju, is recruited by a Hindu fundamentalist organisation.

He is sent to a small tea town in the Nilgiri mountains to recover, but finds that unrest has touched this peaceful spot as well. As the discord surrounding the local shrine comes to a head Vijay tries to alert the community to the dangers, but his intervention has consequences he could never have foreseen...
