Amudha (P.S Keerthana) is an irrepressible, adopted daughter of an urban Tamil family in Chennai. Amudha's birth mother Shyama (Nandita Das) is a rebel leader of a Sri Lankan LTTE cell. The film narrates the disruption and reintegration of Amudha's foster family around two key events: her foster parents Indra and Thiruchelvan's revelation to the young girl that she is adopted, and Amudha's restless search for her birth mother which takes her from Chennai to Sri Lanka.
