This psychological thriller drama film focuses on the Electra concept, which is a daughter's psychosexual competition with her mother for her father's affection. Elektra competes with her mother Diana for the affection of her father Abraham.
Elektra (Nayantara) lives in a world torn between passion and fixation. She is so possessive of her father Abraham (Prakash Raj), that when he returns home from his plantation in Jaffna, she plans to poison his mind about his wife Diana (Manisha Koirala) having an affair with Isaac (also played by Prakash Raj).
When Abraham arrives, he is at first unaware of the impending drama. However, by the dawn of the following day, he is dead. Consumed with rage and grief, Elektra blames her mother for the death, and seeks vengeance. When Elektra's brother, Edwin (Suraj Skanda) – who is plagued by an Oedipus complex – arrives for the funeral, Elektra tells him about their mother's alleged affair.
In the midst of the scandal, Elektra turns to police officer Peter (Biju Menon), who is in love with her, as a source of calm and sanity. But Elektra and Edwin end up destroying each other, trapped by forbidden desires. Diana is brutally victimised.
