Film Synopsis

First the raging sea, then the pouring rain, and finally the burbling river: water is one of few constants in eight-year-old Dighu’s life. He is finding it hard to adjust to life in his grandparents’ village in Konkan, a rural region on the Indian coast. Along with his mother and older sister, he recently moved here from the city. Above all he misses his father, who has disappeared seemingly without a trace. Dighu‘s sister does not know what happened to him either, and has given up asking the grown-ups about it. It is only in his diary and through his imagination that Dighu finds solace from loneliness and grief. Slow-paced and full of wistful beauty, Akshay Indikar’s film tells a tender tale of coping with change and loss.
