A decade after his career crashed in controversy, a forgotten cricketer still captures the imagination of a young man from South Delhi. Fresh out of college, Prashant Padmanabhan is rich, confident, and certain of his film-making talents as he prepares to make a movie about his hero.
Meanwhile, in a grimy apartment in a crowded part of the city, his classmate Vaibhav struggles to cope with the burdens of adult existence. Beset by self-doubt and loneliness, unsure of his place in a daunting society, he searches desperately for the path of least resistance.
But in agreeing to help with Prashant's movie, he finds he has stepped into danger. As the boys delve into the life of a man who was never shy of making enemies, they come face to face with their own vulnerability. The fears of their sheltered circles, the fury of a volatile public - and worse- await them.
A tragedy, a murder mystery, and a coming of age tale, Show Me A Hero is the layered story of innocent youth finding the courage to fight.
