Chhotu is an intelligent boy about 12 years of age from Rajasthan. Born into poverty, he is pawned off by his mother to work at a roadside food stall under the somewhat kind owner, Bhati. The mother says repeatedly "School is not in our destiny". Once, he sees the then President of India, Dr A.P.J Abdul Kalam's address on television. He learns that Kalam was a poor boy like him, who sold newspapers. Inspired by a message from President Kalam, that anyone can change his or her destiny by education Chhotu starts studying on his own whenever possible. The movie is about how there is no such destiny and such supposed destinies can be changed by one's own hard work.
