Written by G Rajesh, the film is centred on a man who wakes up to find out that he has a horsetail. The complications that ensue add to the surrealist nature of the film.
The teaser of the film, which went on the floors in 2018, captures these surreal elements in a dreamlike form. As Kalaiyarasan's character wakes up from a dream, in which he comes across a horse with no tail, he finds that a part of the reverie has stayed back with him. He now has a tail, which he has no way of controlling or hiding.
