    • Synopsis
    • Moti Kahn, a 12-year-old Indian boy, is talented in singing. He loves singing the Manganiyar songs, a big part of which has been the long-time tradition of artist-hereditary patron relationship. But Moti finds singing for their patrons humiliating as they are still treated lowly, and he aspires to earn respect from the world through music. He sets on a journey to the bigger world – will he be able to keep the spirit of Manganiyars?
