In an age where, being oblivious to your true self has increasingly become a reality for many, artistically inclined villager Avdhut Kale struggles to find his place in the metropolis of Pune.
Working as a reporter for the local newspaper, he is stuck writing the horoscopes. At home, he faces the prospect of an arranged marriage. The mounting societal pressures create a disconnect from his true self, yet he is overcome by his own passivity and seeks perspective from friends & family, who encourage him to find wisdom and spiritual insight.
Divided into five chapters, the film traces the journey of Avdhut from his rural hometown in India to the big city, taking us through the challenges of today's modern way of life and the compromises one inevitably makes along the way to find peace and a place we can call our own.
