Two brothers, Akku and Vicky, create a grass roots hip hop movement in the bylanes of Dharavi as a means to escape the grind of urban working class life, and in doing so help successfully changed its perception from an industrialized and overpopulated eyesore to a hub of creative energy that has attracted tourists and artists from around the world.

However, with mounting pressures at home, and the machine-like grind of daily life taking its toll, the crew has all but dismantled. It’s a fight against low expectations and the ultimate struggle between duty and desire, told through the eyes of people who will subvert expectations and preconceived notions about so-called slums and the millions of people who inhabit them.
