In a dinghy corner of a Mumbai ghetto, Daya (meaning: compassion), a restaurant delivery man and his wife, Urmila, a dishwasher for homes, have built a life of simple pleasures with their daughter Aarya. Amongst nosy neighbours and rickety amenities, they create their own little world. It is the only refuge of those suffering a lifelong disparity dealt to them. But, every few days, they exit this world to enter a darker one. Here, they become transactors of the only business available to them: the business of compassion.
