In a remote Nepalese village, Prakash and Kiran, two 12-year-old inseparable friends, despite belonging to different castes, decide to raise a hen to earn some money by selling its eggs. But one day, the hen goes missing. To find it, they embark on a journey, innocently unaware of the dangers incurred by the fragile ceasefire to the civil war rocking the region.
