Plot: Tiruselvan, an engineer and a writer of repute, is a walking testament to creativity. He is short-tempered and does not mince words, although his family sees him as a loving husband and father. His wife, Indira, is a beautiful, excitable woman who is the only person who can blunt her husband's anger.
Their eldest daughter, Amuda, is nine years old, and the terror of the neighborhood, as well as her Tamil teacher. Her younger brothers, Vinay and Akhil are a volatile duo attached at the hip, and always up for a round of mischief with their sister. The family lives happily, despite the occasional attempt at discipline enforcement by the parents at their children's incessant trouble-making, until Amuda finds out that she is an adopted child.
Tiruselvan, unable to bear his child's turmoil, promises to help her search for her mother. Their quest takes Tiru, Indra and Amuda to the war-torn areas of Sri Lanka.
Amuda's conflict and confusion; her angst and trauma form heart-rending questions she needs her mother to answer. "Why did you abandon me? Did you touch me even once after I was born?"
