"Sweet yet powerful... A well-acted, strongly directed story of the relationship between two young women." — Big Gay Picture Show

In this powerful tale of forbidden love, beautiful young Kiran (Suhasini V. Nair) falls in love with her lifelong best friend, the effervescent Delilah (Shrruiti Menon). But in their idyllic Indian village, tradition still dictates that a girl marry a boy chosen by her family. With longing in her heart, Kiran refrains from expressing her love.

When their neighbor Rajan (Syam Seethal) asks Kiran to compose his love letters to Delilah she decides this will serve as an outlet for her feelings and begins to write passionate, poetic love letters to Delilah in Rajan’s name. When Delilah discovers that Kiran is the true author, Kiran tells Delilah her real feelings.

Fortuitously, Delilah confesses to sharing Kiran's desire. As they somewhat recklessly begin a lesbian relationship their deep emotion soon becomes obvious to their families.

As the whispering begins in town, Delilah’s mother (K.P.A.C. Lalitha) confronts her daughter and demands that the relationship end. Worse, to save her reputation, she quickly arranges a marriage for her daughter. Kiran is devastated, and tries to convince Delilah to run away with her. When she realizes that Delilah isn’t going to defy her mother, Kiran is literally driven to a precipice where she must decide her fate.
