Mr. Pathak is a retired civil engineer and lives in Taregna, a small town in India. He is worn out by life's many setbacks and is indifferent to his family - Laxmi, his daughter-in-law and Roshan, his 8-year old grandson.The announcement by NASA that the best place to watch an upcoming solar eclipse will be Taregna, has no impact on Pathak. However, Roshan's curiosity for the celestial event of a lifetime is boundless. When Pathak finally realizes that Roshan desperately needs a father figure, he can no longer remain a bystander to life.
