In this movie, the hero, professionally, a Rockstar but psychiatrically suffers from Schizophrenia, mental illness including psychosis, hallucinosis and thinking disorder. In this condition, he needs to find his past that he nowhere remembers it. At these times, he frequently confronts the people who were involved in his painful past but unable to unveil the actual truth to the world because of this mental disorder. Then how can rockstar uncover the mystery of his history despite disorders is the main theme of the story.
