Abhay is not allowed to eat ice cream. He must not fall sick. He must study hard. He must only walk home from school escorted by older boys from his colony. One afternoon, on the journey back, they take a new detour that presents Abhay with a choice. Will he submit to his conditioning and conscience, or take the opportunity to taste freedom?
Marzi explores the themes of childhood longing, freedom and the importance of children being allowed to learn through their own experiences.
