On March 24, 1989, Dr. Stanley Pons and Dr. Martin Fleischmann stunned the world by claiming to have produced nuclear fusion at room temperature. The claim of Cold Fusion, which had the promise of producing infinite clean energy at minimal cost, was however debunked by the scientific community as pathological science. 

The Play
“Opposites attract and likes repel.” This has been the accepted law of nature.
But laws are often meant to be broken, especially in life.

Arka, a senior research student of Dr. Pradip Basu, believes he has reproduced the ill famous Pons-Fleischmann Cold Fusion experiment in his laboratory. Dr. Basu tries to dissuade him but later gives in to his scientific curiosity. To prove nuclear fusion, Arka needs the help of a nuclear physicist. Kanika, another student of Dr. Basu, suggests they take help of Rudra, a nuclear physics researcher at the institute. Arka meets Rudra and soon discovers that this arrogant and unwieldy young man could not only help with his experiment but also justify his existence as a human being. 

Will Rudra agree to join hands with Arka? 

Will he be able to tear away his mask and reveal his true self?
