Synopsis: We live in a modern world - one dominated with concrete buildings, technology and people racing through life as if on a fast track.’Ramana Savari’ captures a rustic world -- birds, plants and village fairs.

The film also captures the story of a young boy Rama and his journey through life where he lives away from his father along with his mother and maternal grandparents. He meets his father for the very first time at a fair and dreams of a complete family with his father and mother. How does Rama become the bridge to bring the family together is what forms the crux of the film.
