A nonlinear plot weaved on four subplots with few characters spill across subplots. One subplot involves Vaembu, Mugil, and Berlin, a cop; another plot involves Manickam alias Shilpa, Jyothi, Rasukutty, and Berlin; the third plot involves Leela, Dhanasekaran alias Arputham, their son Soori, and Mohan; and the last plot involves five friends: Balaji alias Gaaji, Soori, Mohan, Vasanth (Mutta Pupps), Thuyavan, and an alien.

Vaembu and Mugil’s plot starts in their home with death of Vaembu’s ex-boyfriend during sex with Vaembu, while her husband Mugil was away. Mugil returns home and figures out the incident. Vaembu confesses the accidental sex and eventual death. Mugil refuses Vaembu’s idea of surrendering herself, saying it would ruin his image. With uninvited guests at home, they struggle to contain the situation. They manage to get the corpse out of town but still caught by Berlin, who expects a sexual favor from Vaembu as a deal to contain the situation. Mugil, with a confused state, tells Vaembu the consequences if they refuse. Shattered, Vaembu still refuses, but with no options left them, Berlin tries to take advantage of the situation and make a move.

Shilpa’s plot starts with a family eagerly expecting a reunion of Jyothi with her husband Manickam, who absconded seven years before. To their shock, Manickam arrives as a transgender named Shilpa. The family reacts on his transformation. Their son, Rasukutty, takes Shilpa to school to introduce his friends. A cop suspects Shilpa and drags her to the police station. Berlin takes advantage of the situation and forces a sexual favor from Shilpa, who also faces humiliation in school and is granted no entry. Shilpa plans to return to Bombay. Rasukutty finds out her travel plan and confronts her emotionally.

The boys plot starts with all boys gathering to watch pornography in Thuyavan’s home. As soon as the porn starts, Soori is left in shock upon seeing his mother Leela in the porn. He breaks the TV in anger and runs away crying. Mohan follows to console him. Thuyavan, afraid of his father about the broken TV, takes the help of other friends to find money to buy a new TV. On failing to cut a deal with local don, they are left with an additional burden of more lump sum requirement before EOD. They decide to steal money and encounter an alien while stealing the money.

Leela’s plot starts with Soori trying to kill her, but he stabs himself accidentally by slipping down. He is taken to the hospital, and his father Arputham is informed about this accident. Arputham is a lone survivor from a tsunami who believes that he was saved by the god (in the form of a stone), and he devotes himself to the god. Learning about Soori’s condition, he rushes to the hospital and brings the wounded Soori to his chapel, believing that his prayers would cure him. Leela forcefully takes back Soori to the hospital and struggles to arrange medical expenses. Arputham, who struggles to arrange money, gets confused with faith in God after a short converastion with Shilpa yesterday.He accidentally breaks the statue and finds out diamonds in it.It is from the Italian pirate ship which got sunk.
