Vijay is a 70-year-old street busker from Sri Lanka, who earns a living by singing in buses and cross- country trains.Twenty-five years ago he was drinking heavily and involved in petty crime. Finally, he was forced to leave his hometown after his family accused his wife of killing his own mother. He decided to move near the capital of Colombo where he started earning a living as a street musician.

After all these years of not seeing his family and wanting to come to terms with his troubled past, he decides to embark on a journey back to his hometown after finding out that his elder brother is bedridden and about to die.
