On realising that he has dementia, Amit, an elderly medical practitioner, longs to return to his childhood home. In order to attain some peace of mind, he feels the need to confront the memories that have haunted him. Unwilling to be placed in an old age home, he runs away and encounters Salim, a good-natured rickshaw driver, who offers to drive the doctor anywhere to repay the debt for saving his son’s life. Along the way, Amit and Salim forge an unforgettable friendship and help each other. Both have suffered in some ways when India was divided into two. A journey that has undercurrents of the horror of the partition and the communal disharmony it gave birth to, culminates at the Indo-Pak border with a surprise reunion. The stellar cast has the revered film academic Ram Gopal Bajaj in the lead role alongside Pankaj Tripathi, and Naseeruddin Shah in a guest appearance.
