Synopsis[edit]

The film starts off with an unexpected event that sets in motion an investigation by police officer Akbar (played by Nithin George). A diary which Akbar reads takes the audience through the lives of Luca (Tovino Thomas) and Niharika(Ahaana Krishna), with the diary playing the role of a storyteller. Luca, an orphan, is an extremely talented scrap artist with a very small circle of friends. Luca has a lot of anger in him that pours forth in violent streaks when something irritates him. The film is set against the backdrop of the Biennale and Luca locks horns with Niharika when she passes childish remarks about his installation. She later seeks his forgiveness and moves into his home as a paying guest and from there develops a very close friendship between the couple that transforms into an all encompassing love. She becomes the calming force when he simmers with anger and becomes his guiding strength ready to brave every storm that threatens them to any ‘end’. Luca suffers from thanatophobia (fear of death) and Necrophobia(extreme fear of death or dead bodies) and Niharika becomes his comfort when he goes through such episodes. Niharika, too, has got her share of childhood secrets that have left a permanent scar in her which Luca in turn understands. Into their dreamy world enters a villain in the form of a medical condition and all hell breaks loose. A drastic chain of events begin which eventually sucks Akbar into it. Akbar is fighting his own demons with a prior failed relationship and an impending divorce from wife Fathima (Vinitha Koshy). Luca’s and Niharika’s love story changes him at some point, while he solves his case.[4]
