Durga, a north Indian migrant, and a Keralite youth named Kabeer are running away at midnight. They are awaiting transportation to the nearest railway station to catch a train to a distant place. Two small-time gangsters, transporting arms, offer assistance to the couple. The hapless Durga and Kabeer encounter a cross-section of the society through the rest of the night. Meanwhile, another mysterious event is unfolding: in a Kerala village, devotees take part in Garudan Thookkam, a ritual submitted as a reward for problems solved in the abode of Goddess Kali, who represents Goddess Durga’s personified wrath and embodied fury.
