In 24 hours of uncertain oscillations, helplessness and with their relatives dying and neighbours turning hostile, Devender’s family seek help from their Hindu friends who live across town. As Pal, Tilak and Yogesh travel to save Devender’s family, they come face-to-face with the destruction of humanity. They witness the carnage and the moral corruption that makes men turn into savages.
