nakedness. And to top it all a powwow that throws them into the ocean of love; unblemished by expectations, unburdened by conditions, unrestrained by relations.

What if he too walks on it? Or what if he flies away with it?
What does it really take to fall in love? Is Love a journey, or a stop, or maybe even a destination? Such questions and many others like these unveil on this journey between two strangers.
Let’s relive their journey, let’s eavesdrop their conversation, let’s fall in love. let’s get lost so that we find ourselves. Fly On is based on a True story that unveiled on a bus journey from Goa to Mumbai between two strangers. And the story is too magical to be true.
The entire play is in an absolute representation of the truth with no imaginary lines or dialogues written in order to make it a dramatic piece.
