Aamer lives on the streets of Mumbai, where he makes a living selling garlands to people as they pass by in their cars. It’s a tough life, but Aamer works hard and is quite cheerful, never letting his hearing impairment get in the way of enjoying life. Then comes the day that his mother gives him a hearing aid, and a whole new world opens up for Aamer – a world that is loud, distressing and unpleasant.
