Preetam Kumar Chopra and Hema Roy grew up together in the surroundings and the bye lanes of Chandni Chowk, Delhi. They were in love with each other in their high-school days. Due to circumstances, they were separated and each thought that they were let down by the other.
In the autumn of their lives, 35 years later, they meet again to discover the truth behind their separation.
They now meet in New Delhi’s Lodhi Gardens and pour out their hearts. What they discover is totally astonishing and in contrast with what they had been imagining about each other all their lives. As they say, assumptions and presumptions may not be true conclusions.
Do Preetam and Hema forgive each other? Can they start their lives anew? Can women ever be on the same footing as men in our patriarchal social system? Will society allow two responsible individuals the freedom to live a life of their choice?
