Budhia Singh born next to a railway track, sold at the age of 5 by his impoverished mother to a
street hawker. Destined to lead a desperate existence as a beggar, Budhia is then rescued by a concerned local judo coach, who runs an orphanage for slum children.
Budhia`s talent for running is accidentally discovered when Biranchi punishes the young boy for swearing at one of the Judo students. He asks Budhia to run in the judo compound till he doesn`t tell him to stop. Biranchi comes back after five hours and he is shocked to see Budhia still running.
Biranchi embarks on a mission to turn Budhia into a running phenomenon. Within six months,
Budhia has run twenty half marathons. Within a year, he has run 48 full Marathons. What makes this achievement even more remarkable is that Budhia is still only five years old. Biranchi`s plans are becoming ever more ambitious. He decides to set Budhia an even greater challenge, one that will put him into the in the record books. He will run 70kms (42 miles) nonstop. If he succeeds, he will become the youngest endurance runner in the world, and there will be official observers ready to record his achievements.
With the world`s eyes on them and an international storm brewing, the Indian government decides to intervene, accusing the coach of cruelty, and threatening to take his newly adopted son into care.
An opportunistic tug of war is played-out by adults over Budhia`s control. He is caught in the
crossfire of lawyers and politicians. But before any solutions regarding the fate of Budhia can be
found, a shocking event takes place. Biranchi is murdered by a gangster. Who killed coach Biranchi Das? What precisely was their motive? What becomes of Budhia Singh, India`s `wonder boy`, the world`s youngest marathon runner? Is this the tale of an extraordinary talent or darker one of child exploitation?
