Leela does not believe in fate, but when she is saved from political assassins by an ascetic, Mahakaal, he opens her mind to a new understanding of how destiny works.

While the Police are unable to find Mahakaal, he gradually emerges as a mysterious figure resembling the missing iconic leader Netaji Subhas Bose, who had allegedly lived out an undercover existence in India as one “Gumnami Baba”. This was a Saint who was never seen by almost anyone for three decades, and who always spoke to a chosen few visitors from behind a curtain.

Leela’s obsessive need to understand the Mahakaal mystery leads her to her mentor Bharat, who reasons that regardless of his true identity, Mahakaal is possibly an enigma holding the key to a saner existence. In choosing to follow his guidelines, both Leela and especially Bharat come into conflict with politicians of all hues. When India is subsequently pulled into a two front war, can Leela triumph over her destiny during her suicidal mission in the Himalayas?
