10-year old girl Pari and Chotu, her 8-year old brother live in a picturesque village in Rajasthan. They care for each other very much and tell each other stories on their way to school. Chotu is blind and Pari has promised Chotu that he will be able to see by the time he turns 9. On their weekly trip to the neighbouring village to see a movie, Pari sees a poster with Sharukh Khan appealing to people to donate their eyes. Pari is convinced that her hero can help her fulfil her promise. One day Pari hears that Sharukh Khan is shooting in a location about 300 kms from her village. What unfolds is a magical journey that only the innocence of childhood allows you to experience. The children meet a host of colourful characters who steer them towards their final destination.
An odyssey of a brother and sister whose resolve and love for each other is overwhelming. A film that radiates hope and joy.
