    • Synopsis
    • As India races to bring its entire population online, Deepa and Jaya - two young girls from a low-income neighborhood in Delhi - are introduced to the internet for the first time through an internet learning lab at their school. Their time in the lab opens up a whole universe of new ideas, possibilities and perspectives, and provides them with new ways of thinking about learning, about themselves and about the world around them. When the lab threatens to close and they are forced to consider the implications of having their internet access taken away, their stories provide an intimate reflection on the transformative potential of the internet, and how it affects our sense of self, and our relationships with family, culture and society.
