Sanyukta, a bright, driven 21-year-old embarks on her PhD journey in the lab of a laid-back, obscure Professor. She harbors the usual stereotypes…scientists symbolizing superlatives in the academic, intellectual way and the research lab epitomizing the highest altar of research ethics. A different world awaits her though… Sanyukta finds herself being woven in a maze of contradictions. A PhD ‘guide’ who chooses not to show the way, gifted authorships, sabotaged experiments and a PhD student who shoots to fame not because he happens to be the professor’s lunch buddy! Will Sanyukta be able to reconcile these paradoxes and find her way around in this conflicting world?
