Sometimes you lose what is real. But . . . Dan and Krish have invented a gadget that they know will change the way people experience reality. When the gadget is still in the trial phase, an accident kills Krish’s sister, Maya. Little does he know that Dan and Maya were deeply in love. For both, the pain of losing her is intense, but Dan will not accept losing Maya, and challenges the powers that be that took her away. He sets about creating something unique that he knows will fulfil Maya’s dream of becoming a dancer and also satisfy his need to be with her. Question is, is it the right thing to do? Maya bridges two worlds – reality and virtual reality and explores human relationships through its lens.
