When a beautiful black woman is found naked and dead, and her 10-year-old daughter is found broken by the neck inside a tiny wooden trunk, the police write them both off as accidents.

Devan is only 10 years old, when he is forcefully separated from his mother, Aami, and sent away to Calcutta. When he returns to Kurinji, nothing has changed including his sadist grandmother, and his alcoholic father who physically and sexually molests Aami.

Before their revolts turn violent, Devan must take Aami away with him to Calcutta. But what will happen when Devan finds out the truth?
