Imraan is only ten years old when he leaves the house of his parents in the countryside of India. He goes to Delhi to find work so he can bring money to his parents and pay off the debts of their hospital bills. But it turns out to be a dreadful experience. He has to work until late at night and gets bad food. He is never allowed to leave the workplace and also gets beaten up. He is emprisoned like a slave and so he dreams of the cows that used to graze in the village. He misses his mother, who is ill. What will Imraan's future look like? (IKON, 2013)
