Synopsis

On the streets of the city of Roorkee in northern India a black kite called Kalia is king. Flying higher than all the other kites in the city, its mysterious owner is the envy of a young boy called Gattu. Unable to attend school, Gattu works for his uncle and spends his days dreaming about kite flying. So intrigued by Kalia, Gattu decides that the best vantage point for finding its owner is the roof of the local school and must pretend to be a student to get access to it. But having never been to school and unable to read or write, fitting in is going to be harder than he first thought.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
