Ved is a teenager who comes from a violent home in the slums of Mumbai. When he joins a project aiming to foster healthy masculinity, he starts challenging his views on women and realizes there is a brighter path for him than the one paved by his abusive, controlling father. One of Ved‘s mentors is Harish, a gentle man in his 50s who has dedicated his life to abolishing toxic masculinity. Through his support, Ved takes his first wobbly steps into adulthood, while developing an unlikely new passion: dancing. Will Ved‘s generation be the first men who actually like girls?
