Kamali is the only female skateboarder in her fishing village in southern India. While she finds a way to express herself in the male-dominated world that surrounds her, Suganthi – her mother – takes a pilgrimage in a quest for self-discovery. Raising Kamali and preserving her dreams is a struggle, given the traditional nature of the society to which they belong. But Suganthi is determined to help Kamali go against the grain, become a champion skateboarder, and taste freedom that she did not have.
