The play is about three friends in IIT who are unable to cope. Three hostel mates Alok, Hari and Ryan get off to a bad start in IIT. They mess up a quiz. And while they try to make amends, things only get worse. It takes them a while to realise that if you try to mess with the IIT system, it only backfires on you. Before they know it, they are in the lowest echelons of IIT society. They have a five-point-something GPA out of ten, ranking near the end of their class. This GPA is a tattoo that will remain with them and come in the way of anything else that matters – their friendship, their future and their love life. While the world expects IITians to conquer it, these three IITians are struggling to survive.
Will they make it? Do underperformers have a right to live? Can they show they are not just five-point-somebody but a five-point-someone?
