In a green room 4 artistes come face to face with each other. Two are yesteryears diva and the other two are young heart throbs of the nation. They are all set to participate in an event celebrating 70 years of Independence in small town India. Soon a crisis begins to emerge. The male heart throb of the nation gets banned because of an antinational badge. The Second crisis emerges when there is a power failure. The third crisis emerges when the last option Beni Bai refuses to sing. As the event team tries to cope with these issues, we get a glimpse into the history of bans on artists and the responsibility of the artists to not stay quiet and be suppressed. As Beni challenges all orders and launches into a song she had abandoned ages ago, the trauma of a ban imposed upon her tortures her.
