Nida, intelligent and lonely, has married into an affluent political family and is desperately searching for some meaning in her existence; and impulsive,

On her frequent visits to the Daata Sahib dargah, Nida meets the gentle, flute-playing hijra Bhanggi, who sits under a bargadh tree and yearns for acceptance and affection, but is invariably shunned.
