On a rainy night, in 1945 Delhi, some Indian soldiers in khaki uniforms are brought into the Red Fort, chained and battered, on orders to be shot dead for being traitors. We travel ahead in time to 1996 Singapore, following a mysterious, introverted old man (Old Sodhi) in his 80s, who has come to visit his sister (Urmila) and her family, Subhash (Urmila's son) and Amar (Subhash's son) in Singapore. Old Sodhi takes some time to find his bearings in the new house and is perceived as a weirdo, especially by Amar. In an intervention by his older sister Urmila, Old Sodhi is catapulted into his past, the war of '42, the past he had kept in wraps. Amar is intrigued by Old Sodhi's past and is keen on finding out more. With his journalistic bent of mind, Amar does some research and draws connections between WWII, the INA, the Japanese Army and his grand Uncle and decides to take him to the INA Memorial. This triggers many memories in Old Sodhi and we travel back in time with him as he narrates...
