Three boys, immature, inexperienced and recklessly overenthusiastic, set off on a hike. Their goal is to decipher the secret entrance to a deserted historic fort at a hilltop in the Indian jungle. They are convinced that they can do it without the help of a map or a local guide. Figuring out the hidden path that leads up to an otherwise unscalable fort is great fun. It is even more fun when it is done in the night!
But as soon as they start their journey, something mysterious starts to happen. Time starts playing with them, things go wrong at every step. However, instead of stopping them, the setbacks fuel their zeal and determination. They ignore all the bad omens and continue on the inauspicious journey.
But what happens when they get lost and entrapped in the hill with no way out? What happens when the drinking water runs out? How do they struggle to survive and how do they find a solution?
This is a hair-raising true story about three college students (Indian Institute of Technology Bombay) on a fateful night hike in the year 2000.
