Mother son relationships are celebrated all over the world and the fact that it is the most special bond is accepted unanimously. But in our part of he world, this particular relationship acquires special dimensions. We identify our native land with the the archetype of the mother and even worship the mother figure as the greatest source of power. In today's modernised India, the dynamics between working mothers and their sons are more complex and hence more exciting to delve into. We see journey of a woman, Upama who had brought up her son, Soumya with all her gusto. But the growing son and the corporate culture exponentially created a hostile situation between the mother and son where the daughter in law, Moumita is held culpablble by Upama for this antagonising situation. Amidst all this complex relationship crises, Upama gets to rejuvenate her motherhood through terminally ill child Bitlu, who was allocated to Upama from an NGO by Rajdeep, who was also a childhood friend of Soumya, so that he can bestow a proper shelter to a terminally ill orphan. Thus we see an epiphany of emotions flowing through all the protagonist characters and we see repercussions of those characters, where they succumb to their mistakes and finally we see a reconciliation between the mother and son.
