Vincent, a 10 year old boy steals a GoPro Camera kept for surveillance in a local provision store aspiring to make a cinema. Along with his friends Rosy & Kishore, Vincent begins shooting. But soon Rosy gets into an argument with the boys as they mock her looks. She leaves the shoot midway leaving Vincent’s plans astray. A sense of guilt takes over Vincent and he decides to return or abandon the camera. Their attempts to abandon the Camera fails and ends up getting caught by some men in his neighbourhood. As the camera’s control changes hands, it becomes an instrument for privacy intrusion and begins to instigate violence. The boys get caught on the wrong side of these actions and ends up in an irrecoverable loss.
