In a tiny concrete-and-tin Chennai home live two young brothers with their mother and grandmother. The boys constantly beg their elders for toys and a television – things they simply cannot afford. They don't yet understand that the women cannot give them everything they want. When their mother does find a way to bring an old television home, a portal opens. The boys see a pizza commercial, whose steaming, slow-motion images make the unfamiliar food look like manna from heaven. From that moment on, they dream of nothing but getting their first taste of pizza.
