Named after the angel, Michael (rather known as Guppy) is the sole support to his ailing mother. A talented artist, the teenager earns a living by rearing and selling the ornamental fish – Guppy. He takes great care of his disabled Mother and aspires to gift her a fully automatic wheelchair, someday. The little mischiefs that his friends get into and the occasional glimpses from the neighborhood teenage beauty, Amina, makes his day. Their small fishing village is, lately, under a lot of excitement. Their village dream project just got sanctioned – a railway over-bridge to bypass the railway gate en route. People await the engineers from Road and Bridges Development Corporation.
