(From the publisher):
Fresh from the presses of the Truth Printing Works, the weekly edition of The Banner enjoys a certain distinction. Srinivas, its editor and sole contributor, concerns himself with artistic and intellectual problems: Mr. Sampath, its printer, amicably shoulders the financial burdens. When the paper folds - a surprise to them both - Mr. Sampath sees a way to save an equable partnership. With splendid magnanimity he arranges for Srinivas to write film scripts for Sunrise Productions. Unfortunately, the glamor of it all goes to Mr. Sampath's head, and his sudden change of fortune leads to sublime, unmitigated chaos.
