Komal is just like any other 9-year-old looking to make new friends and plan some mischief. When her father’s friend and his wife move in as their next door neighbour, Komal finds a companion in Mr. Bakshi. What starts off as innocent play-dates and rides to school, soon turns into keeping secrets from Mommy about eating golas. But what follows next is more than the guilt of eating things she isn’t allowed to. Bakshi Uncle’s so-called games soon make Komal feel uncomfortable and she starts feeling dirty about herself. What’s worse is the fact that this little girl feels like she can’t share her feelings with anyone – not even her mother.
