Synopsis

Ila, a housewife, tries to add some spice to her marriage – this time through her cooking. However, the special lunchbox she packs for her husband is mistakenly delivered to Saajan, a lonely man on the verge of retirement. She adds in a note in the following day’s lunchbox, and triggers a strange relationship with Saajan. Through the lunchbox, the two embark on a curious journey of discovery, sharing their regrets, fears and joys through these notes. Still strangers physically, Ila and Saajan are in danger of losing themselves in a virtual relationship that could jeopardise both their realities.
