Two Professors, from Archaeological Survey of India stumble upon a signboard at one of an Indus Valley Civilization site in 1999, flagging off an adventure where one of them falls prey to a Pakistani terrorist who is caught and lodged in a Punjab jail. Eighteen years later, the terrorist escapes, setting off a sequence of bizarre events where he takes a hostage and blackmails the surviving ASI professor to solve the unfinished mystery of the signboard. The professor delves deep into mythology to find answers, helped by the young scientist son of his dead colleague.
