In a small village in Nepal, there's a boy named Kalam. He has nothing but playing soccer in his head as he is about to participate in the children's soccer match. However, Kalam's mother wants to send him to India, where he can possibly get a job. Kalam is sad that his family does not understand him. One day, a civil war breaks out between the Maoists and the government, and all his dreams and the life of the family collapse before the politics as if they were just a daydream. (HAN Song-yi)
