In a small village in northeast India, 10-year-old Dhunu dreams of having her own rock band. Her vibrant spirit, imagination and self-assurance stand out in a world where girls are expected to be timid and submissive. She is a free spirit living in remote Assam, firmly believing in the power of her big dreams. She always wished to own a guitar and is focused to form a rock band with the boys in her village of her own, remaining undeterred in a society that threatens to pull her back.
