Synopsis

Seven-year-old Kamali is the only girl skateboarder in a small fishing village in India where, by chance, a skate ramp happened to be built right outside her house.
Kamali is youngest of three generations of women living together in her home. Suganthi, Kamali’s timorous mother, was locked away as a child until the day she was married. Having recently found the courage to leave her abusive husband, Suganthi decides to take a pilgrimage in a quest for self discovery.
As mother and daughter are separated for the first time, both must find their freedom as they dare to step outside into a man’s world.
