Phuphabai is a tailor, who repairs clothes, sitting under a tree, to provide a life of dignity to his family. Mukeshbhai refurbishes sofas, struggling to keep his home (which is the road itself) fires burning. Both these individuals appear different, and yet share a similar tale of courage, and a persistence to survive.
