Little Miri sets off across a desert of salt pyramids. She is followed by an outcast, as they are forbidden to play together. What follows is a tale of friendship, where the bounds of society unravel one pebble at a time. Even today, India judges with a lens of casteism. Paanchika portrays how friendship survives all these social norms.
