The high drama on our city roads is a metaphor for a country in transition and motion. Here, the vulnerability of the migrant cyclist is in sharp contrast to the sheltered reality of the chauffeur-driven daughter of the CEO. A middle aged housewife finds new freedom with her low-cost car and an overworked bus driver fights exhaustion and road rage as he negotiates traffic snarls. All may not be as it seems as we follow four disparate lives intersecting on the chaotic, unsafe streets of Delhi.
