When Yousuf, the young Pakistani teacher from Rasoolpur, sets off for India with his family for the life saving surgery of his ten-year-old daughter, little does he realise that his sojourn would soon turn into a nightmare from which there was no awakening. His unforeseen ordeal, which begins on the train from Lahore, continues as he is wrongly implicated in a murder at an Old-Delhi hotel. Convinced that the only way to prove his innocence is to expose the men behind the crime, he boards a train to Jammu. However, he is soon overtaken by the outlaws on whose trail he had set out. The out-of-breath Pakistani is pursued, both, by the police as well as murderous infiltrators. While he is on the run, Yousuf realises that much more than what meets the eye, is at stake. The question is – will he survive the ordeal and succeed in exposing those behind the conspiracy?
