Three young men set up an antenna for their ham radio (amateur radio) in an urban chawl of Pune, Maharashtra. They want to connect with the International Space Station (ISS) that orbits the Earth. The astronauts on the ISS thus begin to transmit space weather to all ham radio listeners. A young man with his hand held radio antenna listens to different frequencies wandering through different spaces.
