Pichku’s Dream


film-roll India / Color / 110' / 2018

Pichku lives in a shabby slum in Delhi, with no running water or sewage
system. People defecate out in the open on railway tracks. The 9-year-old-
boy is shy and dreams of his own toilet, a quiet, clean and colorfully decorated place. He will follow his dreams and spare no effort to get a toilet for his home.
