Maali is the story of 16-year-old Tulsi’s trip from the serene highlands to the concrete jungle and her struggle after seeing the greed, loneliness, and melancholy that characterise city life.
You may see in the movie how a young Maali travels from the tranquil mountains to the urban jungle and learn about the negative consequences of deforestation on our physical and mental health.
