Plot

A 12-year-old street kid named Municipality, while on the run from the reformatory, finds and saves a two-day-old abandoned child from being prey to a ferocious street dog. Failing to find any takers among the people he deemed responsible & respectable, Municipality takes up the onus of finding the child's mother himself. Here onwards ensues his struggle in the urban jungle of Mumbai with just four of his friends from the streets - Soda (15), Sursuri (10), Cutting (8), & Dhed-shaana (6).

Municipality's rock steady determination ultimately helps him emerge a winner against all odds as he reaches the child's mother. Though in the bargain, he loses his 'God like' & flawless image of a mother he used to anticipate in his dreams. A mother, who he hoped, would come searching for him someday at the Municipality Hospital, where he was abandoned 12 years back.
