Synopsis

Dhunu wants a rock band. It's an admirable goal for a young girl, but out of reach when you live in a remote village in northeast India. And when your mother is a widow struggling to put food on the table, dreams of electric guitars can seem like madness. Yet a guitar is exactly what drives Dhunu's ambition. At 10 years old she is alive with a passion for music and a dazzling confidence in her own convictions.
