Sarita Champaklal Desai is loath to admit that she is now a senior citizen. But age is catching up with her and she is at a sanatorium while recovering from an illness. According to Dr. Harpreet Singh, the senior experienced medical chief of the sanatorium, there is hardly anything wrong with her physically, but her unpredictable ways, funny ideas and impulsive actions have completely upturned his familiar orderly worldview. Sarita’s instincts refuse to conform to the rules of the sanatorium leading to explosive confrontations with the ever-responsible Dr. Singh.
But Sarita’s enthusiasm for life, though a little skewed, is also infectious and the lonely doctor finds himself being drawn out. Eventually, their irritation with each other evolves into concern and understanding and perhaps the beginning of a delicate new relationship.
