Chandrasekhar waits for a job and dreams of being back home with a classmate he’s in love with. Aruna has lost a slipper, and it was her only pair. Balu wishes he could trade his jackhammer for a poetry book. Sadia and her son are sleeping beside their handmade dolls, wondering what the future holds. Anjanamma makes up a story to soothe the relentless sting of mosquitoes. Nagaraju sightlessly navigates the chaos of a train station and puts out a plea to the universe.

Subuhi Jiwani traces six uncertain journeys from Andhra Pradesh to Kochi, of migrants in search of work, survival and belonging.
