A hit at festivals around India, Barefoot to Goa explores with great sensitivity the Indian middleclass dilemma of what to do with ageing parents and the intergenerational ties that powerfully bind families together. Diya and Prakhar live with their busy parents in bustling Mumbai. Their grandmother in rural Goa regularly sends her son and family countless letters asking them to visit, but never gets a reply, even though her grandchildren love her dearly. One day the kids discover that their mum has been hiding the un-opened letters in a box. They read that their grandmother is ill and upset, decide to set off to see their grandmother in Goa by themselves.
