A well-heeled family from the tiny neighborhood of New Delhi travels from the city through dusty roads that lead to a village in Haryana, far out and buried in the debris of the past. Shreya, the tomboy of the family finally arrives at her father's village for the first time during her vacations that too after coaxing her father, Dev to the best of her abilities. She and her brother, Sam, had in their imagination, spun the village right out of a fairytale, replete with streams, lakes and grasslands that will allow them to run free. But all they find are dusty alleys, dried up ponds and hostile playmates until they spin their magic and befriend this unknown place, especially some of its people, like the Pehelwan and the gang of kids led by Ajithe.

The story revolves around Shreya and Sams adventures and misadventures which turn this dull place bereft of water into a land of enchantment and a million exciting exploits. But unknown places have many secrets and here too, secrets lurk at every corner. Strangely-behaving villagers, a witch whom everyone seems to be terrified of, and a no-access zone beyond the hills intrigue Shreya, more so after housemaid Shabri tells her various mysterious stories about the village. Then, one night, Shreya sees Shabri and her husband Trilochan slink away and starts following them, only to find out a horrifying secret the village harbors.
