Hindus pray to Lord Ganesh before any major journey. He can put obstacles in the way or remove them. Krishna and Jayamma have a happy marriage and a beautiful daughter. They pray to the god Ganesh to bless them with a boy, never dreaming that their son would actually look like his namesake, the elephant-headed deity. Nor could they have imagined that an accidental meeting with a reporter would trigger a life-changing series of events, connecting the young boy and his struggling working-class family in India to a Canadian plastic surgeon. Acclaimed feature filmmaker Srinivas Krishna (Marsala) makes his documentary debut with this powerful and moving story about love, faith and hope.
