The widespread birth of babies with similar deformities triggers a worldwide panic. Disease is ruled out but the actual cause could be something more terrifying. The children, nicknamed Vikaari, all share remarkable set of characteristics and may even possess, if rumors are to be believed, paranormal abilities. In Sri Lanka, a multicultural island nation, their arrival creates an atmosphere of political and cultural unrest. Some factions want to eliminate the Vikaari while others want to use them for their own purposes. Among them three key individuals, a professor of evolutionary biology, a social activist and the leader of an extremist right wing group try to take control of the destiny of these remarkable children. In Sanskrit Vikaari means 'change' or an 'entity that can change'. The Vikaari are here and the world is about to change.
