Born into a religious Hindu family, Aashish soon learns to deal with the hardships with their gender identity and their intimate desire to become female teacher. While having traditional upbringing to become a boy in a conservative family, Ashish seems to lose hope. Aashish makes the difficult decision to leave home and join a new family of 'Hijra' community. The film focuses on Ashish's transition into Aasha; the life of a traditional Hindu Hijra in the modern day India. All transgender roles are played by transgender non-actors.
