Summary of the Book
Bok is a guitar player in a Shillong band, who has a lot on his mind. Kitdor, his elder brother, has lost 50 lakh rupees on a trip to Nagaland, while buying arms for a group of militants. Kitdor is given only a week’s time to repay the money and the only person who can help him is his even-tempered younger brother.

But soon, it turns out that the unfortunate musician is caught in the tangled web of lies of the woman.
