Goopi, a singer, and Bagha, a drummer, are expelled from their villages, when their communities can no longer bear their out-of-tune music. The two bump into each other in a forest, where they perform together. Pleased, the ghost of the forest grants them four wishes. Goopi and Bagha make their wishes carefully, then seek refuge in the Shundi kingdom.When the king receives a warning of an imminent attack, Goopi and Bagha use their musical talent to avert war. A delightful animation from India featuring wonderful folk tunes.
