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. The stakes and potential risks of bone marrow donation and racial, cultural and class differences spark conflicts between the two families, and Tino is caught in the middle. His sister's life - and Tino's dream - hangs in the balance.
