After the death of her husband, Amy Smith, an elderly English woman, decides to return to India to search for her long lost lover and to return a necklace she was given. Through flashbacks, we see how Amy as a young girl first arrived in Madrasapattinam, India in 1945 to join her father who was the governor of the city. Serendipitous events bring her into contact with Paritihi, a brave young Indian man. Amy, feeling drawn towards Paritihi and intrigued by Indian culture, asks him to be her guide around the town and to show her the traditions and culture of his country. Soon, a tender romance develops between them. However, Amy is to be married to officer Robert Ellis, a cruel man appointed by her father, forcing Amy and Paritihi to fight for their love. How will their love story unfold?

Trivia:
The director, Vijay had first explored the script in his college days and drew inspiration from an English professor who used to talk to us about the freedom movement a lot, furthering Vijay's interest in history. He used to visualise about the people who lived in the pre-independence period of India and explored the concept of how it would have been if an English girl fell in love with an Indian boy, laying the foundations for the script, which then took about six months to perfect.

Director Vijay approached Amy for the role without knowing that she had sent her photo for the auditions. They came to know about this only after their meet in London.
