Preparing to enrol in university, Deepa and Hari are in love. When a video they record in an empty classroom after school gets uploaded to a porn site, troubles begin for all. The school convenes a committee to punish them. The committee finds itself
crippled by the social-caste identities of the two students, provoking markedly different reactions. With the involvement of the human rights activist and lawyer Jesse, the issue takes a dramatic turn. What starts as a small but unsavoury incidence now threatens to consume every single stakeholder in its path, thus involving the parents, the college authorities, the police, the legal system and pretty much the entire society.
.Movie will be followed by Q & A with Prithvi Konanur
