Eighteen-year-old Ram Mohammad Thomas is in prison after answering twelve questions correctly on a TV quiz show to win one billion rupees. The producers have arrested him, convinced that he has cheated hi way to victory. Twelve extraordinary events in street-kid Ram's life- how he was found in a dustbin by a priest; came to have three names; fooled a professional hitman; even fell in love- give him the crucial answers. In his warm-hearted tale lies all the comedy, tragedy, joy and pathos of modern India.
