Amongst the cluster of homes in Bareilly resides the amusing Mishra family. The only ‘life loving’ daughter of theirs, Bitti Mishra (Kriti Sanon) works at the electricity board, is a casual smoker, watches English movies and loves breakdance.

The complexities of getting married and feeling pressured, impulsive Bitti decided to run away from home. At the railway book stall Bitti finds a book called ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’. Surprisingly the female protagonist of the novel reads exactly like her. Is there someone like her too in this closeted town or someone who really knows and understands her?
