The play is a love story told through letters exchanged between the two protagonists, Zulfikar Haider and Amrita Nigam, over 35 years. Set against the backdrop of tragic time of partition, they meet in childhood and form the bond which has been depicted by the play. It reflects the passage of time through the soured dreams and doomed love between the two lovers who pursue different paths, yet keep the flame alive through their evocative letters. A girl with soaring aspirations, Amrita writes about her deepest emotions to her childhood beloved Zulfi (played by Om Puri), who reciprocates his unconditional love through his replies.
