Arvind’s father is going through a financial crisis and wants to mortgage the family home to restart his hotel business that was affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Being an influential person in the community, a financier agrees to help him if he married his daughter to Aravind. As arrangements for his engagement are made, feeling helpless he consults his HRT doctor and a psychiatrist who suggest to go public with the transitioning and start living life as a woman with the name Bhanu. But this is not taken well by the school prinicpal or the students nor his father who wants to throw him out of the house. What follows is Aravind’s struggle for acceptance as Bhanu facing humiliation and bullying.
