When a famous director, Jayobrato, receives an offer from a producer who wants to make a film out of four short films made by Jayobrato and three other famnous directors, Trina, Shayko and Diptyo, he shares the idea with them. The conditions are that they have to act in their own short films. They have to travel to the producer's bungalow in a jungle to give him a joint narration of their individual stories and the short films need to have a common theme - Death. Since Diptyo and Trina have had an affair in the past with Shakyo being the silent third angle, Jayobrato has a difficult time convincing them but eventually succeeds. They set out on a journey, all three narrating their stories (which we see as short films shot in contrasting styles) on their way. And also in the process, rediscovering aspects of their past, and also present day relationships in their respective lives. However the film reaches a climax and a tragic end when Jayobrato tells his story and we discover that even he is related to all three, in the process uncovering terrible secrets from their past.
