Ethan Mascarenhas, formerly the world's greatest magician, has been
quadriplegic since a performance went wrong 14 years before. For the
past 12 years Ethan's health has been relatively stable, largely due to
the relentless dedication of his nurse, Mrs Sofia D'Souza. He lives and
works at his home, spreading new magic to millions of people with his
irrepressible wit and spirit through books he has written and his radio
show. But now his internal organs are failing. To avoid permanent
hospitalization and machine life-support, Ethan petitions a court to be
legally allowed to die. Ethan's request - his 'guzaarish' - shocks
everyone in his world, but especially threatens his relationship with
Sofia, who is the core of his existence. Will Ethan's petition succeed?
How will Sofia respond?
