“Chicken” and “Curry” are two schoolmates whose nicknames refer to the fact that they are always together. After failing their high school finals, they try to deflect the wrath of their families by claiming that Curry (an adopted Indian boy) is suffering from an identity crisis and needs to go to India (in the company of his inseparable friend) to discover his roots. The scheme works. The two leave for India, but the trip turns out to be completely different from what they had imagined. “Chicken” falls in love with a considerably older lady doctor who works for “Physicians without Borders”, while “Curry” discovers India, at first rejecting it and then becoming enthralled .
