The film begins with the interrogation of Shalini/Fatima Ba ( Adah Sharma ) by the Afghanistan authority, who has escaped after being captive in an ISIS hideout for a year.
The film then goes into flashbacks, where she narrates her story of how she ended up in the ISIS base in the Afghanistan-Turkey-Syria border.
The story goes back to when Shalini joined a nursing medical college in a district of Kerala and meet Geetanjali (Siddhi Idnani) and Nimah (Yogita Bihani), and another Muslim classmate Asifa (Sonia Balani), who soon starts her plan to brainwash the three girls and recruit them for ISIS.
Sudipto went raw with his content this time and gave some hard-hitting, and strong dialogue. When Shalini is informed that she can’t get her phone back as Sharia law doesn’t allow women to keep a phone with themselves, she responds with logic and says, ‘Jab Sharia law bana tha, tab phone nahi the’, and the narrative follows many such scenes, which left the audience smile and clap in the theatre.
The narrative also shows how the fear of Allah is fed to the girls with scripted attacks, fake love angles, and sexual intimacy with an aim to impregnate the women so that they can be taken to Syria at an ISIS base.
