One night when two bumbling thieves steal his bike, Keshav is crushed and, despite his friends and families best attempts to cheer him up, he feels he has lost a part of himself. Meanwhile, when nearby villagers recognize the bike as Keshav’s, the thieves come up with an elaborate story and struggle to stay one step ahead in their ruse.
