Dhunu, An Impressionable and tenacious 10-year-old girl living in a remote village in northeast India fights against stereotypes and poverty to pursue her dream of owning a guitar and forming a rock band. The whole premise sounds endearingly naive, yet Dhunu's brilliance in everything she does transforms the cheesy bromides into a rallying cry for hope and self-reliance.
