Rhododendron is the name of a sweet looking flower mostly found in hill areas. But this same beautiful flower is used to make poison for animals too.

Those two were supernatural thrillers but this time the focus will be more on deep dark psychology of human mind.

The story has three subplots. First plot is about a girl madly in love with a guy. But later she realises that the guy is cheating her. The second incident is about a deadly drug which has been spread all over in Kolkata. It has been circulated among different ages of males in the city by some unknown sources. Police is doing investigation to find the source of this drug. The third story is from North Bengal. A dead body of a girl has been found in the hill area whose face is completely defaced and can’t be identified. Police finds an identity card of a girl from her bag. But the girl whose id card has been found is still alive. All these stories will be connected but how that has not been disclosed yet for obvious reasons.
