His dutiful son Rajiv is left with no choice but to make the journey with him, leaving behind his wife and daughter. The duo thus check into Mukti Bhawan—a hotel devoted to people waiting to end their days—and Rajiv finds himself having to live with and care for his father for the first time in his life.
