Trigger warning: suicide

The film presents to us a quarrelsome couple that has pushed each other to the brink. After a few years of marriage, the two are always at loggerheads over even the smallest issues. Kadhir and Priya both come to stand for anger and ego, respectively. In the portrayal of their relationship, the film gives us a glimpse into the situations they are capable of when left to grow indiscriminately.

As their fights peak, Priya often threatens to take her life by suicide, until one day when the two reach a point of no return. The film constantly undercuts the tension with humor, finally presenting a story of two characters stuck in an endless cycle of anger, frustration, and impatience.
