Apurba Sundar Sarkar, 43, dies in a road accident and goes to heaven. In heaven, he meets the members of ‘the conglomerate’ – the gods/ prophets of all religions he knows. He finds the conglomerate to be a mutual admiration society which claims to take collective (often unanimous) decisions in the ‘interest’ of mankind. Apurba cannot come to terms with his untimely death and pleads with the conglomerate to grant him permission to return to earth to complete certain unfinished tasks for the benefit of his distressed family. With leave granted for a few days, Apurba returns as a ghost (with special powers) to manipulate one thing after another in an urge to make the remaining life of his family that much easier.
