Kaaka Muttai (The Crow's Egg)
Two young brothers live with their mother and their grandmother in a slum in Chennai, southern India. With the arrival of a television set in their home, the boys watch the world of a rapidly globalising urban India unfold before their eyes. A consumerist world of pizzas, mobile phones and branded clothing, which although is all around them and one that they are keen on experiencing, seems to be far from their reach despite their initiative and enterprise. Determined to taste pizza at all costs, the charming duo infuse this stirring portrait of urban child poverty with hope and humour.
