In Calcutta, Trupti Jayin is a renowned hypnotherapist who specialises in guiding her patients through their past incarnations. Through these immersions in the remotest folds of the past, she heals distant traumas manifesting in the present lives of her patients. Meanwhile, a group of ghost hunters use their technological paranormal equipment to track the restless spirits that roam in the dark lanes and abandoned buildings of the city. The previous incarnations of the patients and the ghosts of Calcutta meet at several karmic crossroads.
