Sonam Dorji has come to India under a scholarship from the Royal House of Bhutan. Seeped in the ethics of Buddhism, he witnesses conflicts while experiencing college life like everyone else in his batch. He finds a nurse for his broken heart in his lab partner, Sarika and falls in love with her.
Sonam is shocked and perturbed by the happenings at his college: the suicide of a fellow student that becomes history in no time and some intoxicated seniors of the college beating up his Bhutanese friends on racist grounds. By the end of the day, he is informed of an academic backlog for no valid reasons and the need for him to repeat the semester.
Deceived by the professor’s fake promise, Sonam leads to the bottom of the River Barak where he could kill himself. His college mate Salil leads the protests following Sonam’s suicide. It is thus the story of a system revolutionized, a divide, a community rejuvenated and a friend lost. Sonam’s retreat is later discovered with the story taking an altogether different turn.
