A woman who makes up her name wherever she goes, whose name isn't revealed until the last pages of the book, a woman who is travelling offbeat places, with only 3 pairs of clothes, a dagger and her ukulele. Who wouldn't want to know about this woman? A woman, who is strong headed and kicks ass? Who wouldn't want to know her story? This is the story of one such badass woman.

From various places like Jaffna to Pokhara, our hero of this story, travels alone in search of her identity and to run away from her past. She meets different people along her journey. While one person in Srinagar pours his heart out to her about Kashmir, another keeps on pestering her to buy marijuana in Kathmandu.

As the story progresses, we see that our hero is evolving. Initially, she says to her readers that she hates men, and that she doesn't like talking to people. But, as she goes to different places, she ends up being helped by fellow human beings and in turn, she unknowingly touches everyone's lives. With her journey, she reflects upon her life and let's the know about her deep and dark past, what made her so indifferent and rude, what made her stay away from people and what made her faith and trust in humanity fade away. Read her hauntingly beautiful story to find out.
