Summary:
Rajkaran is a taxi driver in Dharavi, the largest slum in Asia. Fuelled by Bollywood tales of underdogs beating the powers that be, Rajkaran dreams of becoming a factory owner and climbing out of the depths of poverty. Optimistic of his plans to co-invest in a factory with a few fellow slum-dwellers, he calls for his mother to join him in Dharavi. But when things go awry, Rajkaran watches as his dreams and family fall apart.
