Two boys are fighting over a kite. The idea behind this simple narrative is for these kids to serve as a metaphor between two clashing communities of the subcontinent, the Hindus and the Muslims. At any moment, a small incident can trigger disastrous riots between them. They have both come to a dead end. The only way is to come out of their shells and help each other to make a fresh start. Winner of the Special Jury National Award in the 2004 National Film Awards of India.
