The film begins in Sri Lanka at the end of the civil war as a Tamil soldier (Jesuthasan Antonythasan), burns the bodies of his fallen comrades. The guns are silenced, his family has been killed, and he seeks a way out. He and Yalini (Kalieaswari Srinivasan) are strangers in a refugee camp, but they cobble together a fake family with young Illayaal (Claudine Vinasithamby). It's enough to fool the aid workers and get them to France.
