In Kanpur, India, a young electrician named Loha Singh plays Robin Hood with the city’s failing power supply by stealing electricity from the grid and providing it to impoverished neighbourhoods so that people could run their lives and businesses normally. Meanwhile, the first female chief of the electricity company has vowed to rid the city of these illegal connections, for good. In a summer of crisis, both find themselves equally powerless against the social and political ramifications of the lack of electricity.
