Summary
We meet the Mishra family in Delhi in 1978, where eight-year-old Ajay and his older brother play cricket in the streets, waiting to fly across the world and join their father in America. Life there is everything they imagined and more ... until a tragedy leaves one brother brain-damaged and the other virtually orphaned in a strange land. Now Ajay prays to a God he envisions as Superman, longing to find his place amid the ruins of his family's new life
Summary
