In a remote Indian village, ten-year-old Samay falls in love with film by sneaking into the local cinema and learning the art of analogue projection from Fazal. Eager to share his knowledge, together with his wild bunch of pals, they try to figure how to capture light and project their own images. Samay’s father forbids cinema, believing his son needs education, while the boy’s creative instinct forces him to make hard decisions. A glorious tribute to cinema told with passion through the eyes of a child.
Age recommendation: 10+
