When nine-year-old Inay and her little brother must join their father on a special trip through the city, the pair try everything they can to cause a delay. They know from experience that if they arrive late at their destination, they will be rewarded with loads of sweet desserts. 'En Route' is an endearing short that portrays sibling solidarity and youthful innocence in the face of challenging living conditions.
