Once upon a time, Maya, a young, beautiful, enigmatic woman. One day, her father falls down and breaks his leg. A young doctor who comes to treat her father enters the house, her dreams, her life. They get married. Initially, the excitement of starting a new life, redecorating the house, discovering togetherness, gives her a feeling of euphoria. But gradually the monotony of married life starts asserting itself. The reality suffocates her and her dreams drive her mad. Her search for fulfillment leads her simultaneously in two directions – outwards, towards extra-marital relationships with other men and inwards, towards hyper-real fantasies of romance and passion. Her extra-marital relationships, at first platonic and then passionate, finally pathetically possessive, soon make her aware that adultery can become as banal as mariage. The more she gets disillusioned with the real life experiences the more she indulges herself in her fantasies. And she keeps chasing these self created mirages till her tragic, comic, heroic, magical end.
