Ruth (Kalki Koechlin) has traveled across half the world, driven to find her missing father -- the last remaining link to her tragically broken family. Lost and alone in the sprawling chaos of Mumbai, trapped in a metropolis erupting with a million screaming dreams and fears, she survives by serving men's desires at an unlicensed massage parlor and clinging to the hope that there is a good man at the end of her search. But, despite her grim determination, she becomes entangled with a low-level drug dealer bent on revenge, and finds herself sucked even deeper into the underbelly of Mumbai. And it's in this teeming city that threatens to swallow her whole that Ruth's persistence will eventually reveal a devastating truth beyond anything she could possibly imagine.
Shot using high definition hand-held cameras that capture the intensity of the drama and the setting, visionary director Anurag Kashyap (Black Friday, Dev D) has taken western themes and story-telling into the heart of Mumbai, voyeuristically following Ruth through this dazzling world, both brutal and beautiful, where pleasure can be bought, but love is elusive.
