Synopsis:

Gauru is an emotional & inspirational story of how a 13 year old grandson, Gauru fights against all odds to fulfill the last wish of his dying grandmother. A heart warming tale of the shepherd boy's determination and sacrifice of his most priced possession to correct his grandmother's vision, so she can clearly see her home that she left behind years ago.
Set in Rajasthan, against the backdrop of a severe famine,the film unravels in the midst of the annual migration undertaken by the Raika's (Sheep herding community) and beautifully captures the special bond shared between a grandmother and her grandchildren.

Story:

The grandmother (Ila Arun) is on death bed and she has never been to her native place (myka) since marriage. She desires to go to her native place before death but her son Ratnu refuses her by saying that death is the only option at her age, not pilgrimage. 13 yr old grandson Gauru objects to this and questions his father but in times of draught Ratnu can just feed their belly, not their wishes.

To solve the financial crisis of the family Ratnu and his wife migrate to the city and Gauru is given the responsibility to take care of the sheep. In times of draught the shepherds migrate to faraway places looking for better pasture. Gauru comes to know that this time the shepherds are migrating very near to grandmothers village. He comes and shares this with his grandmother, who says that she cant move an inch and her native place is million miles away!

As grandmother can hardly move on her legs, Gauru manages for a donkey for her to ride on. Grandmother agrees to Gaurus offer by saying, Grandfather came on a horse to take me and grandson is taking me back on a donkey! The rest of the film is a herculean task how Gauru along with his animals and little sister set out on a long journey, the difficulties which they face, their moments of hope and despair.
