The lives of three Indian students studying in the New York University changes forever after the disastrous 9/11 terrorist attacks.




Omar Aijaz (Neil Nitin Mukesh) is a diligent student who studies at the University of New York. He is befriended by his international student counselor Maya (Katrina Kaif) and learns that she was born and raised in New York. Omar also meets Sam (John Abraham), a Muslim Indian-American. Over the next two years, all three become inseparable friends and gradually Omar falls in love with Maya. When Omar realises that she loves Sam, however, he distances himself from them both. Their carefree days finally end with the onset of 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. Sam is immediately arrested by the FBI for interrogation in relation with the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Maya requests for help from the media and insists that Sam was arrested only because of religious orientation. But even the media turns a deaf ear to Maya’s claims. Sam is shifted to Guantanamo Bay, but is later released due to lack of evidence. Sam’s life changes adversely after he comes out of incarceration, as Maya tries to bring him back to life.
