A devastating secret becomes the point of conflict between a father and son. Nithin Swaminathan, played by `Bombay’ and `Roja’ star Arvind Swamy, has got to the point that he can’t keep it in any longer ; a long road trip to drop fourteen year old Shivam ( Sharma) to his boarding school becomes the vehicle of this revelation. How will Shivam react? Will he be able to look at his ‘appa’ the same way again? Will his sense of being part of a loving family be irrevocably damaged? The film uses familiar Hollywood tropes—both the big reveal and the road trip—to fashion a plot whose chief points, for Bollywood, can lead to unexplored territories, and freshness.
