Rooted in the vibrant tapestry of Indian mythology, Drona is the compelling modern tale of one man’s spectacular voyage through the labyrinths of mystic myths and legendary legacies. Of a journey that will force him to face his fears and make him the hero he was born to become.
From the times, when time itself was a newborn baby, the universe has kept one secret carefully camouflaged within its folds. A secret, which if unraveled, could unlock the destruction of mankind and the entire cosmos.
Today, only one man can protect the universe’s precious secret and thus, save the human race from absolute annihilation.
