Earlier seen in movies Hero and Time To Dance, in this film, the actor will be taking you on the journey of an Indian soldier, KPG Shankar, who gets a holiday from the army for 8 days. The film begins as Shankar tries to reach his family and go back to the base within a week. He comes across multiple citizens in need of help and does his best to try and save them. However, these encounters make him late to get back home. The whole country comes together to help Shankar reach his family and go back to the army base in time.
