DD Returns traces the journey of Sathish (Santhanam) who is desperate to save his girlfriend Sofia (Surbhi). He and his friends hide a bag full of money and jewels in a haunted bungalow to escape the police. When they try to retrieve the bag, they are forced to play a dangerous game called ‘Win or Run’ organised by the ghosts in the haunted house.
