Synopsis: Taking a break from her job in Maldives, young, attractive and unhappily married Miriam lands in Trivandrum, with the idea of writing a novel. Honey Kumar is a police officer in charge of visa extension, on a punishment transfer from Delhi to Trivandrum for graft.Miriam wants to extend her visa.Honey Kumar demands sex in return. When Miriam refuses to comply, he fabricates an espionage charge against her.That Miriam is sleeping with Paul Roy,director of the Indian Space Research Centre, renders Honey Kumar s job of trapping her easier.Inspired by a true-life incident,this is an incisive critique of the rot at the heart of India and the corruption, physical and spiritual, that permeates the structures of authority, and how that deep institutional breakdown impacts individual lives.
