Some romances are written in the stars. Others, it would seem, can be chalked up to a misread street map.

When a lunchbox painstakingly prepared by Ila (Nimrat Kaur) for her emotionally distant husband is mistakenly delivered to Saajan (Irrfan Khan - Life of Pi), the under-appreciated Mumbai housewife & lonely accountant strike up an intimate correspondence.

Continuing to use Mumbai’s legion of lunch couriers as their go-betweens, they share increasingly intimate letters detailing their inner thoughts & life stories.
