Every morning Pari and Chotu's long walk to school begins with the toss of a coin outside their hut. The winner will decide if the story that will be told on the way to school that day will be one about a Shah Rukh Khan film or a Salman Khan film. Pari is devoted to Shah Rukh and Chotu worships Salman Khan.  Ten-year-old Pari holds her eight-year-old brother's hand throughout the journey to school and back as he is visually impaired.  With just months to go before Chotu turns nine, Pari feels the pressure to fulfill her promise to her brother - that he will have his eyesight back before his ninth birthday.

 When she spots a poster of Shah Rukh Khan encouraging eye donations, she decides to meet him somehow, convinced that he can help get Chotu’s eyes back. Learning that he is shooting in a village in Rajasthan, the children set off alone on a 300 km journey traversing testing terrain to find him.
