Poorna, a 10-year-old girl in suburban Mumbai wakes up to her routine morning and a looming sense of loss. As the day progresses with a school outing, she visits an old hill and an old age home. A day spent in ‘Mono no Aware’ a Buddhist word for ‘watching the passing’, Poorna discovers the quietly tragic, bittersweet circus of life – the ephemeral nature of all things bad or beautiful and knowing that none of it can last.
