Rudra Chatterjee (Rituparno Ghosh) has spent his life going against social convention. As a young man he defied his father’s wishes, and became a choreographer instead of an engineer.

Soon, Rudra develops a chemistry with Partho and they are deep into a passionate love affair. During the course of their relationship, they decide to adopt a child.

But will this surgery change his life and fulfill all his long-cherished dreams? The story ends with the line “Be What You Wish To Be”.
