The Story:

A fourteen-year-old Dalit boy (Soham Maitra) is growing up in an unnamed corner of India. His dream is to go to a town school like his elder brother (Riddhi Sen) and his reality is to look after the pig that his family owns. His only escape is to sit atop a Jamun treeand adore his beloved (Ena Saha) passing by on her scooter. His unspoken love is as true as his mother's helplessness who cleans the cowsheds of the local strongman's mansion, with whom she also has a secret liaison. When the boy's elder brother comes on a vacation to the village, he soon finds out about his younger brother's infatuation. The learned elder brother makes him realize the need to express his love and helps him write a love letter.

The film is set to have a worldwide release on 8 January 2016.
