The builder is required to give Prof. an apartment in the newly redeveloped multi storeyed building constructed on the land where Professor Gandhi’s old house stood but refuses to give his house, knowing very well that he can manipulate the Judicial system to deprive the Prof. of his rights, just as he as done with other owners. The Professor is forced to go to Court and has to wage a 10 year long fight for justice in a Trial Court in the city of Mumbai where, he has to wrestle the Indian Judicial system which is misused by the rich and powerful. Is he successful in getting back his house? His struggle for Justice and his Mahatma Gandhian way of fighting for Justice, which could be an inspiration for many people worldwide who believe in Justice!
