Jeffrey/Ganesh has been raised with the ideals of social activism as part of his everyday life. His father spends the better part of their lives fighting for social justice in India. After his father dies, being only fifteen years old, Jeffrey is sent to a small town in Ontario to live with his aunt Charlotte. Through several comedic situations and with considerable effort, he manages to make friends and fit into his new, much smaller world of his. However, when his aunt receives an unfair eviction notice from her sleazy landlord, every bit of his background and training comes into play, as he works with her to put on a well-publicized hunger strike which wins the admiration of the local citizens.
