Five medical students from a capitation fee college in India, represent the youth hooked onto XBox's and Formula 1 Racing. That is the only India they have inherited and that is the only India they know, until one day, a game they play, goes too far. As an outcome, they land up in one of the most deprived villages in Maharashtra. Their rural posting turns into a soul-searching journey where they are forced to confront their own apathy, their own fears and their strange complicity in the circumstances of the village. Before they can run from there, they get sucked into the whirlpool of the counter currents. Each of the five undergo different kinds of catharsis and in the end, they have to make a choice. Do they leave the mess just as they had found it and get away from there? Or do they choose to get involved?
