'Vivek was all I wanted. I was ready to do anything for him. He reminded me of Krishna, the love that I had lost and yet he was so different - young, innocent, totally oblivious to the ills of the world, unmindful of my deep desire to possess him, make him my own. It was all consuming, this need, this craving...' A brokenhearted Kaushik arrives in the small, sleepy town of Valai, leaving his disturbing past behind. And even as Valai proves to be anything but slow and laid back, with all its scandals and rumour mongering, Kaushik falls in love again - this time with Vivek. However, the rush of love he feels for this young, innocent village boy is not without its dilemmas - is it the right thing to do? Would Vivek understand if Kaushik tells him the truth about his sexuality? As his love becomes an obsession, life turns into a game of manipulation for Kaushik. Until destiny intervenes and takes him on a course that he neither has any control over nor is he able to change.
