After the marriage of her niece, Rosemary (Soni Razdan), Anglo-Indian school-teacher Violet Stoneham (Soni Razdan) lives a lonely life in her single room flat located at 36 Chowringhee Lane in Calcutta, with only a tom cat for company. She is thrilled when a former student, Nandita Roy (Debashree Roy), looks her up and also brings her boyfriend, Samaresh Moitra (Dhritiman Chatterjee), to her flat. Samaresh is an author and likes the solitude of Violet's flat, and would like to write his new novel there, to which Violet readily agrees to. He likes her antique record-player and she gives it to him as a gift. She hopes she has become part of a family again. It is Christmas time and Violet would like to bake a cake and visit Nandita and Samaresh to surprise them. But is a surprise that awaits her when she reaches her destination.
