A film tracing the travels of ‘Jugni’, a feminine spirit often found in Punjabi folk music and Sufism. Jugni is timeless and does not succumb to one identity or take on a tangible form. The film attempts to capture the transitory nature of Jugni, vis-a-vis , the changing nature of our times.

Keshav Lal has worked with legendary composers such as Laxmikant Pyarelal and filmmakers like V. Shantaram. Fate bought him to streets of Pune where he lived with his wife and together they played music to sustain their livelihood. The story is about the power of hope and optimism – some of the biggest assets of human life.
