The Synopsis of the Short films directed by Kiruthiga,Mysskin and M.Sasikumar.
The value of LIFE, LOVE and HOPE is understood and appreciated by some people more than others. The children of HOPE, who are affected by HIV/AIDS, value these qualities and are willing to share it with the world. The stories revolve around a little girl called Ammu and her encounters with people and life, which are sometimes tough and sometimes full of hope.
The first trilogy LIFE is about Muthukumar, who’s ignorant about the disease. He reacts in the most inhumane way when he has to cross Ammu everyday, but when he’s saved by this child he realizes that fate plays an unfair game- whether its his life or hers!
LOVE-Children orphaned and affected by HIV/AIDS learn to look after each other. It’s the grown-ups who can be misjudging and suspicious about love and affection, for the children it’s simply about sharing and laughing.
HOPE- Hope sometimes gets you through the toughest of situations. It’s a great loss for a little child who loses here entire family to the disease and faces it on her own. Ammu consoles her friend with her little story that helps replace despair with hope.
