Four men from different walks of life are on a quest to find out the real meaning of manhood.

One is a young college student looking for a girlfriend to lose his virginity with, so he can be on par with his friends who consider this a rite of passage, a proof of masculinity.

Another is a middle-aged writer trying to reconcile with the abuse he witnessed during his studies in an elite military academy.

The third is a Sikh father of twins who had been advised to terminate his unborn babies if they were females.

The fourth is a working-class gay activist who came out to his wife after twenty years of marriage and two kids.

Each of them has had different life experiences, but they all pivot around the complex idea of what it means to be a man in a developing country like India.
