Tilo (Aishwarya Rai) is the Mistress of spices who derived all the knowledge about spices and also was initiated as one of the several Mistresses of Spices by First Mother...Zohra Sehgal.They were warned and given special instructions as to never leave their respective stores nor to get in personal contact with any person.
Tilo imigrates to San Francisco and has a store called Spice Bazaar.She has customers from all walks of life..young and old...and the spices given by her satisfy their needs and desires.
Her life takes a different turn when a young American meets with an accident in front of her store.She tends to his injuries forgetting her special instrucions.Her Spices no longer had effect on her cutomers and she realises that all this is because she broke the rules.
However she tries her best to help all of them and finally one day gives herself one night to Doug..who had fallen in love with her.She had made up her mind to close the store and leave San Francisco thereafter.But her First Mother (Zohra Sehgal) arrives and tells her that her devotion and dedication to the spices was true and even if she wanted to leave ...they would never desert her.
