Summary: 'Deccani Souls' is a mystical journey that begins with Hamza wandering through a strange landscape of assorted debris in the winter snow scape. He 'dreams' of another place and time - Hyderabad. In Hyderabad, Babu works for the government as a 'census' collector. Babu acts as a kind of door-to-door salesman and initiates elaborate conversations in order to get people to sign away the forgotten yet painful history of 1948 and 'Operation Polo'. Meanwhile the Urdu poet Siddiq struggles with writer's block as he navigates the history and pulse of the Deccan looking for a lost essay his grandfather wrote decades earlier. They each weave through the portentous streets, cafés and chaos of Hyderabad trying to make sense of this magically tragic city.
