Kamali is the only girl skateboarder in a fishing village. Her timorous mother, Suganthi takes a pilgrimage in a quest for self discovery. Separated for the first time, they must find freedom in a man’s world.

Filmmaker Notes:

Kamali’s story represents an incredible moment in India and shows how massive change can start with just one person. I wanted to create a film that celebrates everyone who takes the risk to be themselves. I believe skateboarding is a symbol of going against the grain, standing boldly in front of society and taking ownership of one’s life. I feel that Kamali’s mother Suganthi, and others like her, hidden by the walls of their homes, are heroes who should be celebrated for their quiet bravery. I hope this film does just that.
