Balika is the surname given to children abandoned by unidentified families.
Balika tells the story of Dipendra and Susmita, two teenagers who live in an orphanage in Kathmandu. Like all their friends, they were abandoned by their families. As the film unfolds, we see how they are compelled to take decisions for which they are unprepared. Susmita will reject her family and Dipendra will travel back to the past in search of answers.
