This evocative family-oriented drama delves into the trials and triumphs in the life of Vickey, highlighting his special connection with his ancestral home in rural Kerala, through critical junctures in life. His first, most impactful homecoming is in the late 1970s, when the teen-year-old Vicky arrives at his grandparents' home to attend his grandfather's funeral. The disjointed family gathers together for the sixteen day long funeral period. During this period, Vicky discovers more about himself, his family and culture than he had expected to. The journey is narrated through the memories of an adult Vicky (Prithviraj), who returns with many cherished memories and hopestowards who returns to the same house to to visit old grounds, and finds the 'Lucky red seeds' scattered away.
