Krishna and Jayamma are a working class Indian couple who prayed to the god Ganesh to bless them with a boy, never dreaming that their son would actually look like his namesake, the elephant-headed deity. Years after giving up all hope of finding medical help, an accidental meeting with a reporter's brother leads to a national television story on Ganesh's facial deformity. The resulting media sensation draws the interest of India's rich and powerful, and a Canadian plastic surgeon, Dr. Sanjeev Kaila, who changes their lives forever.
