One day, a new teacher –Uma, arrives at a primary school in a remote little village in Sri Lanka. There are merely eighteen students in the school with only the principal and Uma herself as teachers. With Uma’s help, her little pupils gradually learn not to be afraid of dreaming big. One beautiful morning, little Upuli, who is blind by birth, shares her unseen dream with her friends Ukkun, Sukiri and others. It gradually becomes the unseen dream, not only in the eyes of the little ones, but also in the eyes of the entire village. The perils that the children and Uma encounter in their venture to realize this dream, and their determination to triumph, is portrayed through the innocence of childhood and the harsh reality of village life. This single dream gives rise to a little revolution, stirring up the quiet village, as it has never experienced before.
