This modern day take on Shakespeare’s bloodiest play Titus Andronicus is set among the fabulously wealthy elite families of north India. The central character is Tulsi Joshi, a widow whose son is about to marry into the Ahuja family, uniting two big business families, when he is discovered dead in the bathtub after an apparent suicide.  Two years later Tulsi herself is now about to marry the Ahuja heir but all is not as it seems, and Tulsi believes her son was murdered and she is out for revenge on his killers.
