The short film is simple and direct in its intentions. It wants to talk about an important concern, the significance of education, which it further ties with the familial space. Arpit and his Dau are farmers in rural Madhya Pradesh, shouldering the burden of survival. In the middle of it all, however, lies Arpit's deep dedication to education, much to the fury of his elder brother.

Dau abuses his younger brother both verbally and physically, forcing him to work on their farm instead. Even in the face of all adversity, Arpit continues to push forth, never giving up on his academic pursuits, for he is driven by a very strong motivator - hope. The title of the film is eventually realized at the conclusion as the most pivotal development of the plot makes its presence known.
