Janardan Jakhar is an aspiring musician who wants to become India’s Jim Morrison. He is told he has to be heartbroken to become a great rock star. He meets Heer, a popular girl in the college. They both become best friends and soon Heer gets married and moves to Prague, after giving him the name Jordan. Jordan re-focuses on his music and is signed by a record label. By then, he has been thrown out of his home on allegations of theft in his own home. Eventually, on a music tour he goes to Prague and is reunited with Heer. They share intimate moments which causes problems for both. Heer also has a terminal disease and things turn gloomier with her growing illness, but Jordan’s presence makes her feel much better.
