After her mother’s suicide, Helen, a young teacher, travels to Varanasi to deliver a letter to her mother’s twin sister Agatha. Agatha runs a missionary for low caste orphan children. When Helen and Agatha meet, it’s the first time Agatha’s seen her for 25 years.
Helen learns of a serial killing spree which has claimed the lives of four low caste girls, all burnt to death in and around city of fires. The killer seeks to claim the lives of seven girls to free himself and his loved one from the cycle of life and death and attain moksha.
Arjun Das, a CBI officer from New Delhi is sent to Varanasi to find the killer. For Arjun it’s a return to his home and a city he left behind. As the Hindu festival of fire and colour ‘Holi’ approaches the killer prepares to claim the greatest sacrifice and seek deliverance.
