Vaidehi, an 80s bride, takes us through a tyrannical face of patriarchy, that is her life, and how she is able to live, love and find happiness despite her often unbearable circumstances. As she becomes a mother to twins - a boy and a girl - her spirit to ensure fails, as she sees the possibility of history repeating itself with her daughter's life. As her journey of feminism starts, she often fails in the face of society, making her daughter question her, in an ironical turn of events.

Maya is a millennial and revels in a sense of freedom that modern marriages commonly offer - until she is faced with a more passive-aggressive face of patriarchy and she's met with a demeaning treatment. As the silence of endurance that she has inherited from her mother and her exposure to feminism clash within her, her mind wanders outside of her marriage.

As Maya and Vaidehi's lives intersect, questions and confrontations explode and die out in the generational chasm that create everlasting rifts and regrets, which women live with.
