Synopsis

When Hanesh, a young British Indian boy, discovers he has a special gift, he soon finds himself in a dark place. Worried about acceptance and scared by the unknown he withdraws into his own shell, disconnecting from the world around him.

Bullied at school, and mocked by his sister, Hanesh’s troubles soon become evident to his mother, who arranges for him to visit his Uncle Vinod, a kind and understanding man in the hope he will help Hanesh. When faced with what seems like a miracle his uncle retracts and leaves Hanesh even more scared and confused.

Hanesh witnesses his father collapse and although he desperately tries to help he is kept away with devastating consequences. He resolves to let his gift fly and with it his powerful secret is revealed to the wider world.
