When the management of Gopalji Damji Hospital decides to compulsorily retire a number of its most senior doctors, no one expects the matter to snowball into a major public relations disaster. But this is precisely what happens. One of the trustees, Prashant Kadakia, leaks the story to a friendly newspaper reporter, whose own father had died in the same hospital just two months before.
Meanwhile in the hospital, a tussle for control is going on. The employees demand a heavy bonus, which the trustees cannot afford. The employees threaten to go on strike. The adverse publicity continues until the board decides to replace the Medical Director. The trustee, Kadakia, opens another avenue with the help of some Indian friends living in the US. They infuse the necessary funds to get the hospital on its feet again but the real challenge is to overthrow the existing board of trustees and get the hospital going again. To succeed in this and to become chairman himself, Kadakia has to walk a tight rope, and douse a number of fires that threaten to cripple the institution forever.
