Synopsis: The verdant green landscape, the magnetic blue waters and the warm bright sunshine of Goa is home to one of the greatest magicians of his time, Ethan Mascarenhas. Presently hosting a Radio Show that spreads magic, hope and laughter to every listener and caller through his irrepressible wit and humour, it is difficult to imagine that this is a man who has been immobilized with a spinal injury for the last fourteen years of his life.
Ethan is aided through every moment of his present life by the epicenter of his world — his nurse, Sofia D’Souza. Theirs is a love beautiful in its implicit silence, unwavering in its quiet strength and spirited in their constant verbal sparring.
On the fourteenth anniversary of his accident, Ethan decides to seek control over his own life. He makes a petition to the Court that shocks the world and leaves Sofia in a stunned state, challenging their relationship and their love.
Alongside all the tumult that follows, a young man named Omar Siddiqui bursts into Ethan’s world, with a single-minded desire to learn magic from the very best.
While on one hand Ethan passes on his magical legacy, on the other, he fights tooth-and-nail to demand the most basic right that every human being is entitled to — the right to his own life. The ethics, the morality, the kindness and cruelty of this mission creates a storm in all the lives that it envelops and its resolution forms the startling conclusion of Ethan’s remarkable journey.
