As a second-generation migrant, 6-year-old Shreya's life tilts between her life at home and the outside world. While her love for family lifts her up, her spirits plummet at the stares and whispers that her amma's saree attracts. Searching for balance, Shreya asks questions about her culture. But despite the beautiful stories her mother shares, Shreya's internal and external struggle continues. It isnâ€™t until her amma's saree saves her from being lost in a crowd that Shreya comes to find pride in her difference.
