Manjunath Kumar is 14 and living in a slum in Mumbai. He knows he is good at cricket --- if not as good as his older brother, Radha.

When Manju meets Radha’s great rival, a mysterious Muslim boy privileged and confident in all the ways Manju is not, everything in Manju’s world begins to change, and he is faced with decisions that will challenge his understanding of it, as well as his own self.
