Irfan (14), is seen strategising his next move in the board game ‘Business’, playing with his friends at Cheetah Camp, a slum area in Mumbai, where he lives. Currently, he works hard to manage time between his academics and additional classes, cricket practice and sketching. He dreams of becoming a cartoonist, which his parents are not keen on. His mother threw away his sketches and the medals associated with them, fearing that Irfan's father would beat him up for the same. She wants to support Irfan to follow his dream but is very fearful of the outcome.
