Plot

36-year-old Vasanthi Tamizhselvan (Jyothika) is a UD clerk in the Revenue Department. Her husband is Tamizhselvan (Rahman) who works in Akashvaani. Tamizhselvan aspires to emigrate to Ireland, but Vasanthi can't accompany him as most Irish companies turn down her job applications because of her age being a problem.There is nothing interesting about her life; she leads a mundane life but she craves for a change.
One dramatic day, Vasanthi is summoned to IG Rajan's (Nassar) office and she learns that the President of India would like to have a conversation with her. The meeting turns out to be a disaster and she become the butt of Facebook jokes and before long, she watches haplessly as her husband and daughter Mithila (Amritha Anil) fly away to Ireland.
Her old classmate Susan David (Abhirami) now a successful businesswoman, reminds her of the woman she used to be and inspires her to rediscover her younger self, a woman with big dreams and aspirations. Vasanthi finds herself face to face with almost every situation that an average woman of her age goes through – from the dread of the fast approaching formidable age of forty, her inability to rise up to her daughter's expectations and her husband's disdain for her inability to make a change in her lifestyle.
The movie focuses on society's obsession with attaching gender and age specific stereotypes to women.
