Synopsis

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.

Di sebuah desa kecil di timur laut India, Dhunu, seorang anak berumur 10 tahun, bermimpi mempunyai band rock-nya sendiri. Semangat, imajinasi, dan keinginannya yang menggebu-gebu tampak mencolok di tengah dunia yang mengharapkan perempuan bersikap tunduk dan patuh. Dengan dukungan dari teman-teman laki-lakinya dan ibunya yang sudah menjanda, Dhunu menghadapi segala perjuangan kesehariannya sambil berharap suatu hari ia akan bisa bermain gitar sungguhan.
