While Anjali waits hours for her new husband to collect her from the Bhopal railway station, a toxic gas explosion sends people fleeing. Anjali wakes in a hospital bed and is determined to divorce her unfaithful husband. Unlike many others who died from the explosion, she believes she only suffers from serious asthma, but doesn’t realize the full repercussions of the accident until years later.
How will Anjali cope when her ex-husband and his new wife are transferred to Ooty, a small Tamil Nadu town where Anjali lives? How will she deal with the full impact of the disaster knowing she would have avoided the toxic gases if her ex-husband had remembered to collect her from the station?
