Rashmi Vira (Taapsee Pannu) is a young, talented athlete from a small village in Gujarat, whose speed on the tracks has earned her the moniker Rashmi Rocket. Rashmi is incredibly stubborn, and only “listens to her heart and mind”. After winning a plethora of local and state competitions, and the heart of fauji boyfriend, Rashmi is all set to represent Team India on the tracks.
However, everything changes when Rashmi is asked to undergo a gender test simply because she doesn’t ascribe to societal standards of femininity. Rashmi is understandably hurt, humiliated and shunned by her colleagues and country people. However, encouraged by her mother (Supriya Pathak), lawyer (Abhishek Banerjee) and other well-wishers, Rashmi decides to fight the system to regain her respect, honour and identity.
