In the wee of a December night, a police jeep screeches to a halt and discovers the victim on the deserted street. We are introduced to investigative officer Varthika Chaturvedi (played by Shefali Shah) who declares in her steely voice that the crime perpetrated "is not just heinous, it is insanity.” Amid mounting media and political pressure, Chaturvedi leads an investigation to nab the six perpetrators, even as the voices demanding justice grow stronger and louder.

The thriller premiered worldwide at Sundance Film Festival on 29 January in the Indie Episodic category.
