Set in a Girl's High School in Mumbai, the story follows a group of 14-16-year-old girls who have closely related lives; even though they belong to the same social circle, they feel disconnected and apart from each other. Underneath the facade of normalcy, each has deep-rooted isolation and leads a troubled life. A bond is created in the midst of certain events and confusion - bringing to the fore issues facing the urban youth around the world. From thoughts of suicide to teenage pregnancy and drug use, the girls learn to overcome the social stigma, popular cliches, and prejudice that exist in high school.
