More than 60,000 children go missing every year and this psycho-thriller film portrays the horror of child trafficking and exploitation in India. After 10 years, police inspector Joshi continues the hunt for his missing daughter, Aruna, who disappeared at the age of six. One day, as he patrols the streets of a poor village in Mumbai, he unexpectedly comes across a bar called Paradise. Meanwhile, an eight-year-old girl, Naina, is kidnapped and dragged to the red light district. There, she becomes close with Komal, a prostitute in her teens. When Joshi swings open the secret door to Paradise, he finds Naina, Komal and other young prostitutes, including Aruna. But his long-awaited reunion is cut short: it was only a dream.
