The witty story of how the world is won by a whacky addict who discovers god in a dog. Meet Hari Menon the quintessential Mr. Frustrated. He has everything going for him—a well paid advertising job and material comforts any young man aspires for. But he believes he is leading a vacuous and miserable existence. On the advice of a psychiatrist friend he takes a sabbatical, joins the ranks of the unemployed and embarks on a journey of self-discovery through the streets of Bombay. In the process, he makes new friends including Vandy Mishra. Through her he finds love and heroin. Join Hari’s rollercoaster transformation from junkie to godman and his final fall in this riveting tale set in the heady and turbulent 80s and early 90s.
