Synopsis: 

“Can’t you build me a playroom mom?”…asks Rahul as his mother, Rakhi, tries to put him to sleep. “When we finish building the dike, I promise” consoles Rakhi. Stuck on a strip of land devastated by water, the entire village is still waiting for reconstruction aid. Since the disaster hit, they have become nothing but outnumbered “poor people”. Waiting seems to be the only thing to do. Yet they dream, yet after the rain…they go out with their shovels and spades to reclaim the life again.
