The story is set up on a wintry evening in Delhi. The play moves around a magical love story, one that was not realized earlier. The play has two lead characters, a man and a woman. The play starts as the woman is sitting alone on her terrace and the man comes to meet her unannounced. She is extremely happy to see him as the two then start talking about a life time they both spent without each other. The ‘what if’ questions are asked and other unanswered questions are addressed.
