Arko takes permission from his grandfather (Soumitra Chatterjee) to allow him to take Sujan out of the house for some time, much to the chagrin of his other uncles (Kushal Chakraborty and Anindya Banerjee) and aunt (Tanusree Chakraborty). As Arko sees his uncle more closely, he realizes that something very wrong has happened to him and the family is hiding a secret.
