Highway is a story of a simple, routine Mumbai- Pune journey that our characters begin in separate vehicles. They all come from different walks of life, carrying their own baggage of what they are. Each one is in a hurry to reach their respective destinations. The journey does not quite end as they expect it to. It provokes some questions that were hidden deep within.
