A pharmaceutical salesman selling local brands in Pakistan struggles to support his family and his young wife until he lands his dream job of working for a global giant in the industry. He quickly achieves success at selling the multinational’s baby formula and rapidly rises up the ranks, socially and economically. One day he discovers that the formula he sells causes the deaths of hundreds of babies. Sickened to the core, he quits and begins a lone and dangerous battle against his former employers who have all the resources in the world and governments in their pocket. It is a typically hard-hitting film from Oscar-winning director Danis Tanović (No Man’s Land). In a role radically different from his serial kissing Bollywood films, Emraan Hashmi is a powerhouse in the central role of the salesman who stands up for justice against an all-powerful corporation.
