In the walled city of Old Delhi, a reclusive shopkeeper spends his days obsessively watching people through hidden closed circuit cameras. When he overhears a boy being beaten, he begins desperately looking for the child. As he looses himself in the maze-like alleys of the city and recesses of his mind, his grasp on reality fails, until he eventually hits a shocking truth.
