Home Sweet Home
Director: N. Sowmya, India

The maiden attempt of the filmmaker portrays the sensitive tale of a young child belonging to an underprivileged stratum of the society. The film underlines the importance of education and how it can be instrumental in reaching one's goals. Chinna, the protagonist, has a dream - a home as shown in his text book. The compelling moment of the film is when his father, who cannot afford a home but does not want to disappoint the child, shows him one such home and tells him, that the realisation of his dream is through the very text book that gave him one. Chinna represents the younger generation of today, who, in spite of things not offered on a platter realize their dreams by way of hard work and sheer sincerity.
