Childhood allies Ira Kamat and Kartik Kini meet in the terrace of their building in Matunga, Mumbai. A meeting in in progress to decide the fate of the establishment and its residents. And the zeitgeist of the 1990s appears to have touched everyone and everything around them.
Ira is now a journalist on the civic beat, unearthing stories of corruption and indolence, trying to push back memories of a lost love. Kartik works for a corporate job with an MNC, and leads a secret, agonising, exhilarating second life. Between and around them throbs the living, beating heart of Mumbai, city of heaving inequities and limitless dreams.
