Just outside the slums of Chennai, a new pizza shop opens. Two impoverished boys, Big Crow’s Egg and Little Crow’s Egg,decide that what they want most in the world is to try a bite of pizza. Getting their hands on the pizza proves to be a more difficult challenge than the boys ever expected. On a classic hero’s quest (for pizza) the friends persist against the odds in order to simply experience childhood.
Shenanigans and hilarity ensue. But there is something more profound going on in this narrative. Once the boys seemingly reach their goal, they are smacked by the full reality of their situation. With endearing performances from the two young leads, Crow’s Egg is far more than light-hearted childhood reminiscence.
