A street child obsessed with a heroine on a film poster, grappling with his burgeoning sexuality as he stands on the precipice of impending manhood. While selling flowers on the streets of Mumbai he orchestrates encounters with a number of women in order to collect valuables that have a special significance and relationship to his paper goddess. A girl's perfume, a woman's ring, a look or a feel enable him to transform the paper heroine of his fantasies into sensations more tangible. His childlike innocence is slowly erased.
