Though tacit, in our society, marriage is the finale of a woman’s life. If that marriage proves disastrous, she is written off, a forgettable statistic. Among such forgettable figures is Bula. Abused by her husband and expected to put in strenuous housework by his mother, Bula finds solace in books and rare sympathy from this young man in their household, Nikhil, the son of her father-in-law’s business partner. As their individual marriages crumble, they increasingly turn to each other for solace and companionship. To the world outside, it may seem horribly illicit. To them, it is the most sacred love story!
