Tino is a 17 year-old science prodigy from a hard-working, blue-collar family, who dreams, eats and sleeps astronomy. Unexpectedly, his biological father, Raju, an astrophysicist and academic, enters his life, as he and his wife Daya hope that Tino will be a match for a bone marrow transplant for their daughter.
