Rahul, who grew up in an underprivileged environment in New Delhi with a population of 29 million,

leaves his extended family and the neighbourhood for the first time in his life for 5 months and flies to Ljubljana,

a city of  less than 300 thousand people, between Eastern and Central Europe.

Seeing and sharing a glimpse of western society, which is idealised in his environment

and having the time for reflecting about life for the first time, 20-year old young man

shares his fresh understanding of the world before he returns back to India.
