The story revolves around a cartoonist named Aritra, who shifts to a new flat for convenience of travelling to office. Very soon, he realises that there is something unusual about the house where he meets with quite a few paranormal experiences. Slowly he understands that it’s not him but the cartoons he has drawn that is bothering the spirit residing in his flat. Jiniya feels it is a paranormal force which is constantly threatening him to evict or kill him. The two of them start searching together, for the dark secret lurking behind the walls.”
