The dead don't speak. But sometimes they leave a trail. Andy Karan, an investigative journalist, is tasked to probe one such the death of a local lawyer. As he begins to unravel the past, within days, he discovers a shadowy parallel life in the village. Instances dont add up and he is quick to realize that there are many loose ends around the drunkards death. And connections reach far and wide to Mumbai, Murud Janjira island and even the high seas off the western seaboard.
But Andy ends up grievously wounded. His new found love Monica's life is in danger too.
Catching the Departed is a story of a honest investigative journalist who is caught between state sponsored retribution of two warring nations and politicians who wouldnt stop at anything, not even the end of the world. And he is all of 30 patriotic, vulnerable and expendable. Attributes that cant guarantee his survival.
