Abandoned on the Mumbai railways, Ajay has grown up with nothing but a burning wish to be a journalist. And after finding an abandoned printing press, his dreams might just come true. But when he and his friends Saif, Vinod, Yasmin and Jai create their own newspaper, The Mumbai Sun, and begin to hunt down stories to fill their pages, the children uncover a plan to tear down their slum—which will leave hundreds of more people homeless.
Can Ajay and his friends really succeed in bringing the truth to light against some of the most powerful forces in the city, fight for justice, and save their slum from bulldozers?
