Vimal promised himself that he would move to Delhi and live a normal life as a family man with his wife and child; erasing every memory of his haunting past. He promised to forget that he had spent his life scraping bloody words into the wall of time.
But one day, a whirlwind puts a sudden end to the calm before the storm and he is blown away like a twig. When he opens his eyes, he finds himself in that place where he promised never to venture again.
