Ruth(Kalki Koechlin) arrives in India at the registar's office seeking a visa while looking for her father who has left England abruptly years earlier. Ruth later works as a masseuse in a seedy massage parlor in the heart of Mumbai. This is not Cinderella finding a golden slipper or a charming prince; instead it is a dark and sad view of human nature. We meet Ruth's coke-head drug dealing boyfriend and a long line of low life's populating the massage parlor and its' surroundings.

The directors' eye for detail is strong and the acting is fine overall, but the story is a typical melodrama, never really developing into anything memorable. Ms. Koechlin as Ruth is the only reason for watching this film, she is much better than the material she is working with here, definitely an actress to look for in the future.
