Anandakuttan has tried his hand at numerous jobs to eke out a living, finally landing up in the tinsel world. Today he is a junior cine artist doing bit roles in small-time movies. He also supplies junior artists to the sets. But he can hardly make ends meet. Nimmy is another junior artist and colleague of Anandakuttan. They live dreaming of eventually becoming stars in their own right. It is at this juncture that Aakash Menon, his five-year younger sibling whom he has never seen comes into his life, kindling hope in Ananadakuttan’s bleak existence. What follows is the often hilarious and often touching relationship between the two siblings.
