A 25-year-old woman named Ananya lives in a beautiful hill station called Ganga in Southern India's Nilgiris district, with her father, Ashok Mahadeo, and aunt, Gayatri Garg. Ashok is the head of the local Kishore Kumar fan club while Gayatri runs a restaurant. Ananya's mother left home years ago to pursue her dreams. Ashok still waits for her to return. A local shopkeeper, Gangaram, who they owe money to, has feelings for Ananya.

In order to support herself and her father, Ananya runs a watch repair store where she meets a stranger named Andy. He comes everyday to get his water-logged watch repaired and leaves a ₹100 note in the form of an Origami swan. Andy claims to be her classmate from school and admits that he had a crush on her and had agreed to wait for 10 years to see her. She takes a liking to him and both hang out together while she attempts to deal with her creditor, Gangaram, and increasing pressure from R.K. Constructions who want to build a resort in the area. Eventually, Ananya and Andy fall in love. However, Ananya's world shatters when she finds out that the real Andy died several years ago, and the man claiming to be him is actually an inmate at the local mental institute.
