His wife is set on a bigger house and a better car while trying to ace her MBA exams, his teenage son wants to quit school to get rich, his colleagues are suspicious of a Muslim teaching Indian history, and his old friend has just reconnected with a childhood sweetheart for whom Alif has always had feelings. Then one day, while leading a school field trip, the unthinkable happens, and Alif finds his job on the line as his life – and the world around him – rapidly descends into chaos.
