The strange connection beyond love – The unknown key holding the lovers
When Bruce, a teacher and Rachnee, a high school student fall in love, their different dreams but with a common connection drive them to search further for their own identity. This quest takes them to a bizarre world of youths committing suicide, a woman in an orange coloured sari flitting past and an eccentric man luring young men and women with easy money against immoral activities.
But why does Rachnee go out in the middle of the night and Bruce make a trip to The Ancient City?
And will the unknown identity the lovers share shock them? But before that certain situations need to be cleared up.
