A young man returns home to Delhi after several years abroad and finds that everything around him has changed, except for the people, who are the same, only maybe slightly worse.

But when Aakash is arrested for murder, the two of them are suddenly swept up in a politically sensitive investigation that exposes the true corruption at the heart of this new and ruthless society.
