Synopsis :

In times when the old get younger and the young get older, the relationship between the young and the old has gotten even more complex. Nana, a retired single adamant old man, has no idea that an unwelcomed guest on his four– a puppy is going to change the course of his life. Aadima, a senior graphic designer artist, doesn't have the faintest inkling that the same puppy is going to force her to go on adventures she otherwise wouldn’t. And Neel, her grandson, has no clue that he is going to help Nana and Aadima understand the needs of elderly singles. It is a slice-of-life delightful tale of longingness, companionship, reconciliation and coexistence.
