A very angry bus driver, abandoned by his wife and going nowhere in his career; a sanctimonious conductor; a nervous, half-Indian businessman clutching a briefcase full of cash; a right-wing Hindu matriarch; a young boy returning to his village after robbing his employer. They all meet—and witness a tragic event—only because they are all travelling on the same bus, in the same direction, on the same day. With exceptional poise and beguiling simplicity, Khair introduces a range of voices, thoughts, ideas and identities, allowing each individual's story to unfold gradually.
