In a small village in northeast India, 10-year-old Dhunu dreams of having her own rock band. Her vibrant spirit, imagination and self-assurance stand out in a world where girls are expected to be timid and submissive. With her gang of boys and the support of her widowed mother, Dhunu faces the struggles of her daily life and hopes for the day she can finally play on a real guitar. One-woman filmmaking machine Rima Das shot her enchanting sophomore feature on location with non-professional actors, capturing the spirit of youthful dreams alongside themes of female empowerment and self-belief.
