A feature-length documentary about the last days of Kathputli: a handmade artist colony hidden away in the alleys of New Delhi. Spanning three years, the film follows Puran the Puppeteer, Rahman the Magician, and Maya the Acrobat as they approach their looming eviction. The residents cannot imagine that their art — so intrinsically tied to street life — will blossom in the high-rise flats where they will be resettled. The community that emerged here over decades, and whose art became an Indian national treasure, is threatened with extinction.
