As India, host of the 2011 World Cup of Cricket, begins its campaign to win the Cup after a 28-year drought, three ordinary Indians—a penniless superfan who cycles across India to cheer the team, a 12-year old cricket prodigy and a girl cricketer from Mumbai’s slums—seek their salvation and escape from a difficult life through their passion for cricket.

Sushrut Jain was born and raised in Mumbai. He has degrees in Mathematics and Economics from Stanford University. After working as an economist, he went earnt a MFA in film at USC. In 2008, he made a short film titled Andheri—a realistic drama set on the streets of Mumbai. The film played at over 40 major film festivals including Clermont-Ferrand in France.
