Aashish is an aspiring teacher who has struggled with his gender identity since childhood. Aashish makes the difficult decision to leave home and join a traditional transgender community (known as Hijras). The film focuses on Aashish’s transition into Aasha; the life of a traditional Hindu Hijra in modern India. All transgender roles are played by transgender non-actors.
