On a warm, muggy summer's day, Nikunj is at the cemetery to attend Saira's burial. Saira, the long-lost love he has been searching for, even though he is married to another woman now. But what are Usman and Parmod doing at her grave? Who are these women - Gulab, Mumtaz - that lay claim to her resting place? This is a love story. But what sort of relationship can you have with a dead person, what sort of future? Ghosts don't grow old. Or have children. But do we really know? If they can reclaim a body for themselves, perhaps they can cover that body with stretch marks. In the afterlife, possibilities stretch into infinity. Gulab tests the limits that our mind sets upon a ghost's powers. If you see her as a woman clinging to life, there is not much to fear. Yet: what if she wants to return to your life? And what makes you think you can make her leave? Annie Zaidi brings her characteristically clear-eyed exploration of love to this beguiling, hair-raising ghost story.
