On a train journey to Varanasi, Yogi meets John, a writer and narrates him a gripping story about three friends: Krish, an IITian pursuing his entrepreneur dream; Tony, a vodka craze-high school-dropout; and Asif, a music-loving carpet-seller.

Life takes them journeying into an eventful trip to Goa. Eventually, a prediction by a psychic and plane hijack makes it more happening. This was not the end and they go on a search for a monk in Tibet. Their journey continues seeking nirvana on the Ghats of Varanasi and falling in love with a tribal girl in Afghanistan. Eventually, where exactly did life take them? What is Yogi’s connection to them? Is he one of them? What were the life lessons for John? What did he promise Yogi at the end of their journey?
