Academic and environmental activist Neal Parker is assigned by an American NGO to study the effects the construction of lavish resorts and opulent hotels has on Goa's beaches and marine life. He asks his former student, Seemantini, to accompany him. In Goa, they are provided accommodation in the large and luxurious villa of an affluent Goan named Alonso Braganza. On the first day of their study, they stumble upon a construction built close to the beach and are confronted by Alonso's workers who warn them not to visit the place again. A day or two later Neal discovers, through a newspaper article written by an Englishman the construction is an illegally planned luxury 60-storied hotel built inside the demarcation line. Being a stranger in Goa, he looks for someone to help him stall the construction. This leads him to Bhagyashree, a young female advocate. She discovers that the investor is none other than Alonso Braganza his host working in partnership with a Russian billionaire. In their bid to rein in the construction they are threatened by Braganza. Notwithstanding the dangers they face, Neal is determined to put a spanner in the works thereby jeopardizing their lives.
