Over 5 million people commute every day in 2000 suburban ("local") trains in Mumbai. During rush hour, more than 4,500 passengers travel in a single train that has a seating capacity of only 1050 people. The film is an insider’s view of the condition of the passengers and how this prevailing condition is vulnerable to terrorism. To portray the reality in the most original way, the film is shot live with the passengers of the 09:24 local from Borivali.
