The protagonist, 10, is one of those nameless street kids, surviving in the debris of modern Indian city life. But hes a plucky warrior, living at railway stations, and negotiating a world of drugs and crime. Only in his dreams, he permits himself to hunger for home, family, warmth. His mother confesses her guilt in letting her boy go adrift...a moving portrait by a National Award-winning director.
