While these three teenagers, two girls and a boy, begin to outline their own individualities, they find themselves gradually conflicting with the age-old rules set down by the community. Bulbul is attracted to a boy for the first time, but her mother advises that “Girls should be modest. Girls should behave well.” Sumu is bullied for not conforming to what his peers believe of a young man. For Bonny, the pressures of the community become intolerable.
