Four feisty women from the bustling bylanes of old Bhopal, quietly chase their dreams, rebelling in small ways against the conventional identities they are boxed in. Through the colourful prism of the double lives of these women, the film explores the many shades of female desire.
A college girl struggles with issues of cultural identity and her aspirations to become a pop singer. A young beautician seeks to elope with her lover and escape the claustrophobia of her small town. An oppressed housewife and mother of three lives the alternate life of an enterprising saleswoman. A 55-year-old widow rediscovers her sexuality through a phone romance.
Caught in a conservative society, these women set forth to break the mould, in search of a little freedom.
