From his bed in a camp hospital after the Tsunami, Anthony, an impoverished Catholic Indian from Tamil Nadu, asks whether his family have survived the catastrophe. Anthony left home a week ago. He recalls his experiences during this week in which he walked from the fields near Pondichery to Bangalore, looking for a job to feed his family. He set off by bus, penniless, but a road accident will force him to continue the trip on foot. On the way, he will meet Rama, a Hindi who hides a painful secret. They will share the journey, coming to terms with their personal stories, as days go by, they are increasingly forced to acknowledge the dry and coarse intensity of the present.
