The film is a sketch of a 10-year-old girl’s childhood through a day as she loses the lead role in the school dance. It outlines a sense of wonder that prevails within her despite the constant lingering loneliness that comes with being born to working parents. The film explores how her energies are getting trapped in an environment where her company has been easily replaced by a smartphone. With time the sense of wonder will be crushed in the backdrop of rapid urbanisation that is hitting the city. She is unaware that it is just around the corner and it will shape her life by soon intruding her most intimate spaces.
