After Heer’s mother dies, her grieving father becomes distant toward her. In her own grief, Heer becomes inseparable from Moti, her mother’s baby goat, even taking the young animal with her to school, where she is bullied by older boys and made fun of by her classmates. Eventually, even though Moti is a source of comfort when she misses her late mother, Heer finds that to move forward with her own life, she must not hang on to the past it represents.
