An old adage says – Pay off your debt, and you’re a free man! However, debt or loans are not limited to money. It can be anything at all. Debt, its repayment and the sense of freedom it brings are the three pillars of the story exploring how debt affects both the giver and the receiver.
Formerly a well-known writer, Balmiki, 58, now lives in obscurity stripped of dignity and respect. A year ago, a publishing house gave him an advance of forty thousand rupees to write about his wife, who was murdered thirty years ago. Despite repeated requests, Balmiki has not provided a single page of the manuscript. To recover the writing, the publishing house engages Sounak, a young debt recovery agent. Balmiki tells Sounak he cannot write on his own due to ill health. Now, Sounak engages Medha, a middle-aged woman to write down what Balmiki dictates. Assisting Balmiki with his writing is not an easy task. Moody, evasive and impulsive, he quickly drives Medha into chaos. A unique journey awaits Balmiki, Medha, and Sounak as they pursue opposing and conflicting objectives. Interestingly, the last page of Balmiki’s writing holds a lot of surprises.
