Utkarsh and Swapnil - Su's Story (5.5M)

Su is a young unicycle who is very much attracted towards fame (the spotlight). She wants to have fame and is always in a pursuit in the hope that sometime she'll catch up. A time comes when she accidentally jumps to catch fame and as usual, fails to catch it. Ideally, she would again stand up and resume her journey to catch fame but this time, she feels elated because of the jump. She is so excited about her jump that she totally forgets about fame. She starts enjoying her life instead of just following fame. During all this time, fame is watching her from a distance. Eventually, fame itself comes to Su.
