Pichku lives in the poor part of New Delhi, the oldest slum with no running water or sewage. The shy boy dreams of his own toilet because he is uncomfortable with emptying himself on the railway tracks in front of all his neighbours and friends. And the smell is unbearable! Pichku will follow his dream and do whatever it takes to get a toilet for his home – a quiet, clean and colourful space, and his new friend Gopi will help him. An irresistible comedy about a resourceful nine-year-old who knows he cannot wait for a miracle but instead needs to fight for himself.
