This is only a short-answer space but I can make a general comment. Lila is a young girl of thirteen living in a poor fishing village in India. She has three younger siblings and together they are forced to care for themselves after their mother gets ill and their father starts drinking and stops working. Despite the hardships she is forced to endure, Lila remains optimistic and tries to help her family. She takes over the responsibilities her mother had and takes care of her younger sisters while also cooking and cleaning around the house. She grows up quickly, just like her brother Hari.
