Written by Stephen Belber, the play is set up in a seedy and sleazy room at Hotel Samrat in Borivali.
The story unfolds with Michael, a drug dealer with a fanatic behavior, who is waiting in the hotel room for an old college friend.
Enters Praveer Sarkar, an indie filmmaker, who is doing pretty well comparative to Michael. Going back in time, a casual conversation takes a turn when a shocking revelation takes place with a hidden tape as a proof.
Michael makes Praveer admit to committing a sexual crime 10 years ago by forcing himself on Riya, their common friend and Michael’s ex and terming the one-night affair as ‘rape’.
Soon, they are joined by Riya and the situation turns into an awkward reunion, with the trio having different perceptions regarding the same event and soon it leads to an argument where Riya agrees to having had a mutual sexual encounter as opposite to the claims by Praveer and Michael.
The denouement brings about a strange end with Riya getting distressed by their argument, eventually bluffing them by calling the police, accusing Praveer of sexual misconduct and Michael of possessing illegal drugs, leading to Michael flushing off the drugs and destroying the tape and Riya making an exit, only to make them realize that they were fooled by her.
