Dhaanu, a villager, heavily in financial debt, stealthily returns from the city to the village one night. He is hiding from a moneylender, who he owes a handsome sum of money. Pushed against the wall, he decides to sell his donkey, Bhasmasur, in the city, to fetch a good price for the animal.

Dhaanu's son Tipu, who yearns to go the annual fair in the city, shares a very strong bond with the donkey, Bhasmasur. Tipu in his own childish ways tries to stop Bhasmasur from being sold, but remains unsuccessful. Dhaanu decides to take Tipu to the city too.

The trio set off on a journey from the in lands of Rajasthan towards the city, by foot. Along the journey, numerous events take place, bringing the absent father and his son closer. But, will Dhaanu be able to make this bond last?
