While growing up in the picturesque pastoral land of the Himalayas, Mana, a low-caste young boy, learned the ugliness beneath the awe-inspiring beauty – the prevalence of caste hierarchy. His encounter with an unloved dalit boy, who had been convinced to be the ugliest boy on Earth, made him realise how the sense of superiority and the fear of inferiority are ingrained in our being regardless of caste and class. The guilt of mistreating the ‘ugly’ boy and other such events in Mana’s life turned him into an indifferent and reclusive man. Things take a karmic twist when the ‘ugly’ boy returned in his life as a bigwig. Let the Ugly Bird Fly scratches the varnish off some propagated and accepted fallacies through an unyielding struggle for the freedom from both, one’s own fears and weaknesses as well as societal bondages; a struggle that led to a murder and changed Mana’s life forever.
