Mohan is a successful scientist working as a project manager at NASA, when both his parents’ dies, he feels lonely and starts missing and longing to his Village back in India. Soon he decides to go back home and track down his old nanny Kaveri, who used to take care of him once a child still living in India.

While on his quest for his Nanny, he gets reacquainted with an old friend that seems to admire the man he became and his noble gesture of taking his nanny back to the states.  But the rest of the villagers don’t share her feelings and positive outlook on Mohan or his accomplishment.

Swades is above all a nostalgia filled trip down memory lane, a deeper and more internal quest than it may appear.
