Laila is an exceptional student at Delhi University: she is an aspiring writer, she crafts lyrics and music for a college band, and she has cerebral palsy. However, there is one area where Laila lacks experience – romance. After she gathers enough courage to confess her love to the lead singer of her band but is rejected, she immediately drops out of school, not wanting to face the source of her embarrassment. But it is only when Laila meets Khanum, an assertive blind woman of Indian/Pakistani ethnicity, that she embarks on a journey of personal discovery to figure out her place in the world.
