This film is about Arjun, a seven year old mischievous boy, who lives in a world of imagination and adventures. Arjun, like all other children, has his own set of likes and dislikes, and his own imaginative ways of dealing with them. The film is about one such dislike of Arjun and how his imagination helps him overcome it.

Like almost every other child, Arjun too, hates drinking milk. Every morning he gets up with a master plan to defeat his biggest enemy—the glass of milk, but each time, the milk haunts him back. The film chronicles the various ways in which he tries to defeat the milk and how in the end even after all the failed attempts he manages to win over his fear or dislike. The target audience for this film is mainly children but it can also appeal to the elderly as it is a story which is easy to relate to.

A lot of thought went into finalising the character of the milk monster and a lot of work had to be done in order to come up with a simple form which was convincing enough. A wax crayon type treatment was chosen for the backgrounds; this gave the overall film a hand-drawn feel. Since it is a children's film and the storyline is playful, the colour palette chosen is bright and cheerful so that it conveys the playfulness and humour of the story.

This film helped one realise that filmmaking involves a different kind of passion, it encourages out-of-the-box thinking, but at the same time it also involves a great amount of responsibility.
