Synopsis/ Description
The Film is a bittersweet journey into the lives of ordinary people and their extraordinary worlds. Told through the lens of medical clowning, it questions the gaps plaguing our healthcare sector while also interpolating the complex worlds of two clowns. Through their artistic and intimate life experiences, these clowns stand out as non-conformists who firmly believe in pursuing untainted optimism. Using theatre as psycho-social counseling strategies, they reach out to those stuck in difficult medical scenarios.
