Daya, a 77-year-old man, has a premonition that his death is imminent and wants to get to Varanasi, a town sacred to observant Hindus, who believe that dying there is a stairway to salvation. His dutiful son, Rajiv, leaves behind his wife and daughter to make the journey with his stubborn father. The two of them check into Mukti Bhawan (Hotel Salvation), a hotel devoted to people hoping to spend their last days in Varanasi. As Rajiv juggles with his responsibilities towards his family, Daya finds a sense of community in the hotel. As the days pass, Daya shows no sign of letting up, leaving Rajiv torn between his father and his family.
