A poor kid living on the street wants to eat cake - his father uses imagination. A girl wants to buy a doll with alternative currency. A young boy gives a security guard some lessons in frisking. A young chef tries hard to get his hands on a recipe for a chocolate pudding. A paanwala baba is about to break his twenty year long vow of silence. The five moments of its childlike innocence branch out into a more intricate gamut of an urbanscape, culminating into a climax where the stories no longer exist as singular threads in their own vacuum but come across and play with each other to form the cosmic fabric itself.

Did You Know?


The segment titled "Continuum" begins with a screening of a documentary - this is obviously the documentary that the French filmmaker is seen shooting earlier in the "Enlightenment" segment. The kid from the "Love" segment is seen dozing off in the audience. So chronologically, the segment "Love" took place after "Enlightenment", though it happens earlier in the movie. Also in the "Love" segment, one can find a poster titled "Illumination" in a shot background. Illumination is French for Enlightenment. See more »
