The film is a documentation of the lives of three characters from Jogeshwari in Mumbai as they live out their aspirations and get over their fears during the festival of Dahi Handi. The sport of Human Pyramid is where these characters find glory and fame. The community comes together to celebrate the festival and compete with other Mandals/Groups.
