Indranil Deashi is scouring for the right twist to complete his slasher thriller, 'Pitch-Dark'. In a parallel universe, the fictional characters inside of 'Pitch-Dark' are, meanwhile, constantly hurtling through an exaggeratedly possessive director's many mood swings and idiosyncrasies. When Indranil has just about nailed a fitting conclusion, an unexpected visitor turns up. Personal demons catch up with Indranil, leaving him shattered. And dead. Rajiv Dey, writer of schlock thrillers, attempts to recapture his glory days by accepting to finish 'Pitch-Dark'. He's promoting the novel to a deceptively thorny critic. A hard-boiled, lecherous detective encounters a protagonist from the novel. Brutally slashed. And the hunt for the perpetrator begins.
