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. Highway is a film of that escape which all of us yearn for. It is an attempt to see our own reflections in today's time.

Bobo (Emraan Hashmi) is India's top magician, a star. But unknown to even his beautiful girlfriend Tamara (Huma Qureshi), his life is falling apart. Hallucinations about his dead little sister Misha are casting a dark shadow on his life, threatening his very sanity. He is shown to be frequently drawn to his old vacant family apartment, where in the latest visit, he opens the lid of a treasure chest in one of the rooms, only to see a vision of his little sister Misha dead inside with a lizard crawling over the body. Tamara tracks him down to the apartment at the same time, taking him back to the room and opening the chest, only to find Misha's old doll inside. This latest hallucination proves to be too much, and Bobo is left with no option but to seek psychiatric help in the form of the rather odd Dr. Palit, who puts him under regression hypnosis to go back to the distant past, when Bobo was 11 and Misha 6.
