Krish and Meera, form a young Indian couple climbing the ladder of the corporate rate race in a nation hurtling forward at a rate unprecedented in its long history. Stressed, frustrated and unable to come to terms with the sacrifice required for success, they go in search of a legendary magical insect – The great Indian Butterfly.
Last seen by the unknown Portuguese explorer carodiguez, in a remote valley located in erstwhile colonial Goa, the butterfly possesses a magical aura, granting immense happiness to the person who catches it. In this journey for the search of the butterfly the couple loses more than what they want to rediscover. It becomes a passage, which seems to travel with a metaphor of its own and an insect as a fossil trapped in prehistoric resin.
Will they find the Butterfly? Can they survive the journey? Will the Great Indian Butterfly wreck havoc on their souls. Will there be redemption. Or is it a futile hunt for an answer to their crumbling lives. Is happiness a rare insect?
A simple tale in the complex miasma of changing India.
