Chicken and Curry are two inseperable schoolfriends. When they both fail their exams, they make out that Curry, who is an adopted Indian boy, is suffering from a crisis of identity and needs to travel to India to find his roots. Their families agree with this, and to Chicken accompanying his friend. What starts out as an excuse turns into reality for Curry, whose initial dislike of India transforms into fascination. Meanwhile, his friend Chicken falls in love with an older woman, a doctor working for a charity.
