What if the path never travelled is taken by an altruistic, young blind lawyer, Arjun, using road humps and sidewalks as sign posts, in a fight against a devious and cold blooded pharma company, totally oblivious to the perils of the nasty clash? As thousands fall prey to a deadly viral infection, a dedicated team of doctors succeed in their quest for a treatment option. But their achievement is short-lived, as the unscrupulous multi-national Berminger Pharmaceutical Corporation, deliberately creates artificial scarcity of the drug by using their patent to profit from the situation. Exasperated with the mighty corporation's stone-cold attitude to loss of lives, coupled with the government's reluctance to intervene, doctors take the fight to the court with Arjun's counsel. Set in Hyderabad, the pharmaceutical capital of India, Arjun clashes in the courtroom with India's leading patent lawyer and outside - with goons and assassins. The battle turns nasty as dirty tricks and devious tactics pervade each party's desire to win. Brilliant arguments and crafty legal reasoning enlighten, while gripping sequences add flavour to the fire of genius. Amidst craftsmanship and thrilling encounters, Arjun's banana- obsessed assistant, his strong, but not so well mannered dog and romance with the enemy entertain. In the tradition of John Grisham and Scott Turow, the intricacies of patent law are woven into an action packed legal thriller in Road Humps and Sidewalks.
