An all too common phenomenon in India, power outages constitute a nationwide crisis. Although only a village-school dropout, Ezhil (Arun Chidambaram) is determined to find a solution to the persistent electricity problem. His efforts take a dramatic turn when he reads a book in the village library: Ezhil is certain that he’s found an innovative means of generating power and soon begins spending all his time in research and experimentation. The skeptical townsfolk discourage the optimistic dreamer — with some dismissing him as a hopeless nutcase — but Ezhil perseveres, confident that he can make the impossible possible. “Dream Factory” is highlighted by a pair of delightfully funny songs.
