Butterflies Of War

2027... The film begins by depicting the world crumbling under the terrors of the outbreak of the Third world war, that is the nuclear war. Washington has fallen, London is under heavy bombardment, and parts of the continents have been fully obliterated by Mass destructing weapons. Along with rampant violence all around the globe, there are shortages of food, medicines, and other vital resources with maximum of cities on a blackout.
Martin and Kevin, two hired mercenaries, are thoroughly wounded, fatigued and cornered by the Russians in an alley in Kolkata, India. Martin, born in Bangladesh, somehow manages to escape, only to end up in Taniya's Bedroom. With the war ravaging the civilization outside, Taniya and Martin, two strangers with opposite upbringings, meet as strangers and somehow end up in sharing their dark stories... about the War they fight daily, deep inside. The intensity of the war aggravates, but the fervor of love and romance manages to linger on, like the last drop of resistance against a time marred by bloodshed.
The Nuclear War... Is it really knocking on the door? Was Nostradamus true about his prophecy of 2027?
