On the day that Hindu nationalists and their controversial leader have won a spectacular election, an apartment building collapses in Mumbai. Only one survivor, is found - a man trapped under a beam, mumbling in delirium. But what he is saying is that two people are on their way to carry out a terror attack. Akhila Iyer, a medical student but also a notorious prankster, has rushed to the scene. She is small enough to crawl along to the tunnel to the dying man to administer painkillers - becoming the only link between him and the police, hearing what he is whispering.
