The story of a middle class teenager and his journey to adulthood, his experiences of love, friendship, sex, his career and his endeavor to seek the true meaning of life. A social and psychical insight of the life of an Indian youth in the twilight of the 21st century. It is not just a teenage love story but the story of how love becomes your shadow throughout your life until your last breath. Sijill John has a story to tell. Born in a small town of Himachal to a couple from Kerala, he begins his tale from getting enrolled in his favorite school. The place which gave him memories of a lifetime with a girl who became his biggest source of inspiration in the later part of his life. But, before reuniting with her he was caught in this materialistic world cornered with never ending desires. Did he succeed despite obstacles? What compromises he makes? Why does his one desire prove fatal for all other desires? And why he damns them for eternity? Can an average youth like him remain alien to the political or communal unrest in the country? Is love just the result of a chemical reaction in brain or a lifetime source of enlightenment? Does it have the power to kill violence and hatred among us? Sometimes the biggest setback can be the brightest hope!
