    • As a part of the curriculum of his film school, Karthik, 26, and his classmates are to make a graduation film. Psychologist Sandhya Dixit reccomends and approaches Athira, whose mother Malathi Menon, 52, is an Alzheimer’s patient. Athira who is also her caregiver lives with Malathi in their ancestral farmhouse which is located out of the city, in Haripad, Kerala. Karthik along-with his team that includes Hari, Alex, Arundhati and Jenny arrive at their house. They begin to live and capture every moment and action of the patient. The next few days all the activities of Malathi and Athira is recorded while they bond with each other talking about the past and life in general.

      ‘Why me? Why did I have to get the disease out of all the people?’ A question asked by every person experiencing any catastrophe!! And through their interactions she reveals the condition of an Alzheimer’s patient.

      Malathi is shown to exhibit increasingly bizarre actions that her psychologist, Sandhya, states are normal for someone with an aggressive form of Alzheimer's. However, Karthik and the team notice that several of Malathi's actions defy normal explanations and expresses concern that something supernatural is occurring. They also notice that she scribbles on a group photograph of teachers from the alumni of 1995. A conversation with Athira reveals the disappearance of her friend and colleague, Vedic professor Bhargava Bhatt, in mysterious circumstances. After an enquiry, Karthik finds out that during the time when Bhargava went missing in 1995, two other missing cases were reported that were unsolved.

      As time progresses, bizarre and evil things begin to happen with Malathi that are beyond the unpredictable. It is gradually discovered that there is a deep secret which has been covered up for a long time. And that the Past has come to take control of the Present in something spiritually evil, and has taken control of Malathi.

      ‘Why her?’ The question is now asked by Athira, watching her mother possessed by an earthbound spirit. She had to find the answer to this question and liberate her mother from the evil that has taken over.
