Guru, an end-stage cancer patient, comes to a quiet medical campus and quickly befriends his host's friends and neighbours, his warmth and sympathetic manner encouraging them to confide in him. Out of these conversations emerges a name - Prabhakar Tambe - which spreads a pall of uneasiness over the doctors and triggers a chain of events that leads to catastrophic results.

Rumours start to fly, old tensions and rivalries between colleagues and friends re-surface, and every family on the campus is caught in a web of suspicion. Within weeks, two people die in mysterious circumstances and it seems that life will never be the same again for the doctors and their families.
