A young man who is contemplating on Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, heads out for a run. In his mind he visualizes the struggles of two chained imaginary characters that represent Men and Women around. He comes across various people (such as - a school kid who is selling newspaper, a corporate girl, a security guard who is reading while guarding, a corporate guy, an auto rickshaw driver reading in his interval, a struggling mother who sweeps the street and studies while taking care of her baby). His mind gives him illusions of an imaginary chain that represents barriers around people, he comes across. The imaginary characters in his mind continue to depict the nature of struggle and the pain people go through. The turmoil in his head keeps on increasing and the person keeps running faster and faster till he gets visions of these people breaking their chains. The journey of breaking these chains is powered by education and karma. Once the shackles are broken, the guy feels liberated and is set to find an ecstasy that he never thought was attainable. This ecstasy is portrayed through the joyous dance movements of imaginary characters in his mind and his uninhibited run. His body, mind & soul have let go of all chains.
