Romesh and Ragu try their hand at surviving in the Canadian wilderness, but Romesh soon gets tired of his uncle's surprises, which include appearing on a news channel where the presenters are naked and arranging a kidnapping while they are in the wilderness.

Having abandoned his mother again, Romesh tries to make it up to her by taking her to a glacier to see the northern lights. Show less
