A town at the edge of thick forests, connected to the world by a pair of railway tracks, bristles with intrigue. Kabir is an unwelcome visitor and has no business being curious about what really happened to Regina, a nun from a local convent, twelve years ago. The only thing everyone knows is that she was killed in the most gruesome way possible. What no one realises is that someone else may meet a similar fate, very soon. Pulled into the ongoing drama involving an ancient forest people- the Kands, colonial conspiracies, a tree with a secret past and a storyteller who plants lucid dreams in unsuspecting minds, Kabir finds himself caught in a web of events that unsettle him a way he never imagined possible. His ally is fierce young Alika, born in the forests, raised in a city and as determined to know the truth. Together they try and make sense of the bizarre reality they encounter, only to find themselves sinking deeper into its ugly, hungry clutches.
