Abstract:

Real estate developer Dharmen Shah's offer to buy out the residents of Vishram Society, a formerly respectable, now crumbling apartment complex that abuts the infamous Dharavi slums, is more than generous. But one man stands in the way of Shah's luxury high-rise. Masterji, a retired schoolteacher who will not leave his home in Vishram's Tower A. Shah is a dangerous man to refuse, but as the demolition deadline looms, Masterji's neighbors, friends who have become enemies, acquaintances turned co- conspirators, may stop at nothing to score their payday.
