If traffic is communication, then the permanent traffic jam in Mumbai has long severed the connections between the city's inhabitants. And if uncontrolled growth is a disease, then Mumbai has cancer. This is the opinion of Veena, who does everything she can to halt the expansion of the road network above the rooftops in her neighbourhood. But Mr Das, who has the ungrateful job of being the official leader of Mumbai's extreme traffic makeover, has other plans. Just like the family father Yasin, who has just saved enough money for a super-cheap Nano car, which is forecast to strongly multiply the current number of 550 new cars in Mumbay every day - and to get the already nasty pollution to follow suit. Everything that can go wrong apparently has gone wrong a long time ago in the Indian metropolis. But what about the future?
