Synopsis: The world's deadliest industrial disaster occurred in Bhopal in 1984. Dilip (Rajpal Yadav), a rickshaw driver in Bhopal, India, lands himself a job at the Union Carbide plant. It is a chance to prove his worth to his family and pull them out of poverty. The job is tough with long hours; everyone is desperate to hold on to their pay cheque and so Dilip keeps quiet when he notices managers at the plant ignoring safety standards.

Dilip’s long time friend, Motwani (Kal Penn), a tabloid journalist knows that Bhopal residents complain of the constant stench in the air and wake up at night choking from the gas. He is on a mission to expose what he believes is a deadly time bomb ticking away in his home town. He feels as if no one will listen but when he meets feisty American journalist, Eva (Mischa Barton), he sees a ray of hope and persuades her to confront Carbide executive Warren Anderson (Martin Sheen).
