An innocent childhood friendship is traumatized when Rohan attempts to confess his love for his best friend, Saachi; and instead, in an intoxicated moment of desperate weakness, sexually assaults her. This love saga deals with a reversal of behavioral roles; where what a quintessential victim of rape should feel is felt by the aggressor, due to the nature of their relationship prior to the attack.
The plot chronicles the journeys of Rohan and Saachi. They meet as children and become inseparable friends. Their childhood friendship blossoms into a secret love in their teen years. However, in a desperate effort to confess his love for Saachi, Rohan falls prey to intoxication and in a drunken state of weakness sexually assaults and rapes Saachi. Ironically, this moment proves to shatter Rohan's emotional state of existence a lot more than it shatters Saachi, the victim. The guilt of this hideous act makes him forfeit happiness, friendship and love all together. Only with the return of Saachi in his life after eight long years, does he begin to smile again, laugh again and live again.
