Summary

In India, Ram Mohammad Thomas from Mumbai has been arrested for winning the biggest prize on WHO WILL WIN A BILLION? Because an orphan with no schooling cannot name the smallest planet in the solar system or the plays of Shakespeare. Unless he has cheated. Rescued from the cells by a lawyer, Ram prepares his defence by reviewing TV footage of the show and takes us on a tour of his life - from the day he is salvaged from a dustbin, to his employment with a Bollywood star, and his career as tour guide at the Taj Mahal. Stunning the TV audience, he draws on his street wisdom to provide him with the keys not only to the quiz show, but also to life itself.
