Quite early in his life, Aman has been labeled a “weirdo”. His side-parted, oil-soaked hair and gawky physique made him the butt of jokes among his peers. There is nothing spectacular in his life- he studies all day, has never had an interaction with a girl that lasted more than five minutes, and scribbles his inner musings into his best friend, a personal diary.
Deep down, however, the guilt of being considered a social killjoy by the society starts to have a negative impact on him.
When forced out of his solitary shell into the action-infused warehouse that is “college”, Aman’s life takes a drastic U-Turn. Owing to a chemistry project, he is forced to partner up with Kiara- a cheerful soul who tucks away her dark, brooding past upon arriving in Manipal.
What follows is a series of awkward encounters and quirky adventures ones that throw them in the deep end and make them face their worst fears.
