Little Bhavini dreams her way out of a Mumbai slum into a career as a dancer. She keeps practicing the steps of traditional Indian dancing; she keeps begging her mother to allow her to take lessons with a famous teacher. But it’s expensive and they are barely scraping by since her father died. So Bhavini begins to work at her mother’s beauty salon. And, there is another obstacle to overcome: the entrance examination. This documentary, explores the question of what it means to live for one’s dreams.
