Two young brothers growing up in the slums of Chennai have a great dream: to someday eat a slice of pizza. In the course of their clever and cockamamie schemes to earn money, they are unwittingly drawn into the political machinations of adults. This vivid portrait of childhood poverty and resilience in South India is witty and wise, an engaging and warm family comedy with satiric bite.
Notes to parents: There are some instances of adults using coarse language and some bad behavior by children (being disrespectful to elders, stealing), though the children learn their lesson. A grandparent passes away. An adult slaps a child and is blackmailed by other adults.
