Yaalini and her husband, Panan, live in an isolated beach in Northeastern borders of Srilanka. Panan, a boatman, helps refugees coming to the beach, fleeing from the ethnic war, by taking them to India on his boat. One day, Yaalini encounters an army man in the isolated beach. But Panan and the refugees feel that she is hallucinating. Yaalini wants to leave the beach immediately as she is concerned about her baby. But Panan wants to stay back and help as many people as possible. Will she be able to save the baby? or was she in fact hallucinating about an army man stalking her?

But Yaalini wants to leave the island as she believes that the army is closing in. But for this Yaalini has to make the unknown woman in the dark room to convince Panan, her husband, to change his mind. But the real problem is that Yaalini can't find her baby anywhere on the beach.
