Ahmad is a hard working Pakistani trying to keep his head above water in New York, serving coffee and treats to the busy Manhattan-ites from his push cart during the day, and earning some extra cash selling bootleg DVDs by night. He meets affluent fellow countryman Mohammad, who takes him under his wing, offering welcome work decorating his apartment. He also befriends Spanish woman Noemi, who works at the newsstand close to Ahmad\'s cart. The three start to socialize together, but these ill-defined relationships falter, as we see timid Ahmad patronised by Mohammad and taken for granted by Noemi. We gradually learn more about Ahmad, about how he was a famous singer back home, but also how he is haunted by a past tragedy.
