Bindu and Girish are a seemingly typical middle-class working couple in urban India, parents of an 8-month-old girl named Pinki. They leave their baby at home with the nanny, Sannamma, and head for work. Sannamma laces Pinki’s milk with alcohol and lends the baby to a friend, Anasu, who leaves her under the overpass while she gets a peg of alcohol. A city sweeper, Pathu, accidentally discovers the child, bags her and takes her home. Confronted with the loss, Anasu then dashes back to Sannamma and the two of them head out looking for the baby. When Bindu returns home from the office, having forgotten something, she discovers to her horror that Pinki and Sannamma are missing. Thus begins a day of frantic search that takes all the stakeholders to strange places, people and situations, forcing them to confront their past, present and future.
