Mahesh (Bharath), a stoner who leads a lonely life. It is this reason, the film tells us, that has turned him towards cannabis – for instant dopamine hit.
One Sunday, after Mahesh has taken a “hit”, his neighbour Madhu (Bhanu Sri Mehra) asks him to look after her pet Great Dane, Simba. To Mahesh, who is under the influence of the marijuana, Simmba (Premgi) appears to be a person.
The rest of the film is all about how Mahesh bonds with Simba and how they try to make Madhu fall in love with him.
