Luca (Tovino Thomas) is a talented scrap artist with a very small circle of friends. Luca does not know how to control his anger and he expresses them in violent streaks when something irritates him. The film is set against the backdrop of Kochi Biennale and Luca locks horns with Niharika (Ahaana Krishna) when she passes simple remarks about his installation.
Niharika is a free-spirited young woman who is not afraid to speak her mind. She is also a talented artist, and she is drawn to Luca’s work. However, she is also wary of his anger, and she is not sure if she can trust him.
As Luca and Niharika get to know each other, they begin to fall in love. However, their relationship is tested when Luca’s anger gets the better of him. Can Luca control his anger and win Niharika’s heart?
