The film Jhalki story about lost childhood, against the backdrop of child slavery and human trafficking. It has elements of sadness and inspiration. It follows a nine-year old street girl Jhalki, in search of her seven-year old brother Babu, who is pushed into child labour, where there is no respite. Inspired by a folk tale of a tireless sparrow, her own ingenious endeavours and presence of mind, she manages to find and get freedom for her brother, along with thousands of other slave laboured children.
