What do you do when life reaches a dead end? Giving up is an option, but certainly not the only or the best option. Onaatah a rape victim, wounded from inside and by the stereotypes of society realizes the same too. She refuses to be a loser but doesn't know how to pick up the pieces of a broken life. When the events of one fateful night leave her scarred and the courts and society keep dragging her hurt for years; she is almost broken. As suggested by her father earlier, Onaatah ponders on taking a break and going to her uncle's remote village. Her decision to come to her uncle's village takes her to another world. He and his wife are a constant support to Onaatah and she is absorbed in their day-to-day lives. Adding to the flavour of the film is the rich terrain of Khasi hillS.
