The life and times of two kids Periya Kakka Muttai (Vignesh) and his younger brother Chinna Kaaka Muttai (Ramesh) growing up in a slum making a living stealing coal from the railway yard.

The urchins have their own dreams like any other kids and foremost is their dream of enjoying Pizza from the newly opened Pizza shop but the symbol of the best on offer in western food is well beyond their means. Their curiosity about pizza is because, the new shop is opened by Tamil film star Silambarasan. They decide that by hook or by crook, they will gain entry into the upmarket Pizza shop and have a slice of it with their own money. They set about the problem in ways that have far-reaching and unexpected consequences. Will they succeed in their quest?
