    • Talat Raza is a 14 year old schoolboy in Kashmir who sleeps with a football & wakes up with a foootball. Ever since his parents were killed by militants, 10 years back, he has lived with his anut and uncle in a small town in Kashmir. All of Talat’s desires revolve around the happiness of his foster parents and getting the ball into the goal on the football field.
      One day, on his way home from a school football match, Talat finds a gun lying on the path. Despite admonishments by his newly made school friend , the 13 year old Nasreen, Talat picks up the gun and thus begins a journey into the darker side of his nature.
      The quiet yet strong Nasreen, becomes Talat’s conscience keeper. She tries to dissuade him from giving in to the lure to the gun.
      However, all is not what it seems. Talat gets embroiled further in situations beyond his control and people get killed.
      At first it seems that the events occurring alongside Talat’s predicament are not connected, but as layer upon layer unravels it becomes clear that Talat is the innocent victim in a game being played out between the militants, the army, the peace bartering politicians & the head of the little Kashmiri town.
      The pieces of the puzzle come together at the very end leading to a shocking revelation
