Thirteen-year-old pratik pallavanathan, aka pp's easy life in dubai takes a horrendous turn, when, during a holiday in India, his redoubtable grandmother insists on a trip to their long-forgotten ancestral village. Cooped up in a rambling house, with on-off electricity, no internet, and annoying relatives, PP feels like he's losing his mind. And then the hallucinations begin. In a series of bizarre events, he sees a phantom in his room, the family's pet cow acts weird in his presence - and a dilapidated corridor leads him to a strange land, straight to his hallucinations. A flabbergasted PP realizes he has time-travelled to 1920, and the hallucinatory phantom is his own ancestor of the time, Simha. PP realizes that he has a connection with simha.
