Following a prophetic dream, 77 year-old Daya announces that his time has come and demands to travel to the sacred ghats of Varanasi to achieve salvation in his final days. His overworked son Rajiv finds himself roped into accompanying him to Mukti Bhawan ('Hotel Salvation') where Daya finds a new lease of life among the residents of this last stop hostel. A charming and gentle comedy about a father and son trying to navigate the complexities of family life and a strong contender for next year’s Foreign Film Oscars.
