Ravi and Padmini share a strained relationship due to their teenage son Buddhi’s intellectual handicap. Buddhi, a mildly autistic slow learner displays his flair for art but his parents, with their middle class insecurities, neither recognize nor encourage his talent. Driven by Padmini’s social insecurities and Ravi’s guilt for dropping Buddhi as a baby, the parents chase an unreal dream of seeing their son as a normal, good student who, like others must become an engineer or a doctor. While Dr Sen, the neurologist tries hard to make Padmini accept the reality, Ravi’s accidental meeting with Dr Satya- the maverick scientist leads him to experimental “ Brain Booster” that can make Buddhi a genius. The side effect of this unnatural drug reveals the dark side of their dream, something the parents had not bargained for.
