Men, women and children in a South Indian village are filled with excitement at their journey into the city, oblivious to the tragedy that is about to befall upon them. An accident that leaves many villagers coping with the loss of loved ones. Swarnalatha was a talented singer with a burning ambition to perform in the city. She lost her child and her best friend in the accident that fateful morning. She believes that she is cursed and holds herself responsible for the tragedy. She now spends her time in a self-imposed exile never daring to cross the bridge to the city ever. Abhinay who lost his mother in the accident was a child when the tragedy struck his life. Not satisfied with his job in the city he sets out to start a music band. But he knows something is missing in his music and he constantly strives to find that missing 'note.'
