This compendium film presents the work of eight young filmmakers from the village of Delwara in southern Rajasthan, India. The eleven-year olds took part in a video workshop at their local government primary school. One film was made jointly by all the children, exploring the life of their village, and two films by individuals. The first concerns the family of a girl, Kiran, who herds goats. The second is by Mayank, a boy whose father is a barber in the village. It provides an affectionate portrait of his father and gives insights into the day-to-day home life of his family.
