Our story starts on a Saturday which is the day Rahul is allowed to meet Kali as per court custody arrangements. Rahul leaves her in the car, as he goes to meet his friend…and Kali goes missing.

What follows is an endless series of blame game and one up-manship.A dark psycholgical thriller on the surface, Ugly is an emotional drama within.
