The 52-second-long animation, the signature film of the 28th IFFK, was released at Tagore Theatre on 7th December 2023. It intricately portrays the significance of Kerala as the epicenter that encapsulates the essence of cinema.

The film unfolds with a plant sprouting out of the earth, signifying new life in the lush green land of Kerala.
