Manoj is a simple man from a small city of Uttar Pradesh in India. He wins a short trip to Singapore which he mistakes to be ‘Singapur’, never having heard of Singapore. Apart from the cultural shock that he is met with, Manoj meets with a case of mistaken identity for a personal Hindi teacher by a Chinese Singaporean man, Xin Hway, who he also mistakes to be his tour guide. Having very little knowledge of the English language, Manoj, fails to understand his own mistaken identity, let alone correct it. Unintentionally teaching Hindi to a willing Chinese man, Manoj ends up having an extraordinary trip to “Singapur” and finding something universal.
