In the remote Nepalese village during the Maoist Civil war, Prakash and Kiran, two 12-year-old boys are best friends, despite belonging to different casts. The simple ownership of a hen means a world to them: by selling the eggs they can make money and fulfill their childish dreams. But their society is constrained by poverty and caste divides. The sister of the poor one, Prakash, secretly joins the Maoist party, while the groom of Kiran’s sister gets arrested and killed by the Maoists. Trying to get the hen at any price Prakash and Kiran have to face the harsh reality of the world surrounding them.
