Gita is an 8-year-old girl who can't wait to celebrate Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights, in her new home in Canada. But it's nothing like her old home New Delhi. Canadian weather is cold and grey, and a terrible ice storm cuts off the power. She fears that her plans for the party are ruined. Obviously, a Diwali celebration is impossible without lights. Or is it? As Gita experiences the glittering beauty of the icy streets outside, the traditional festival of lights comes alive in a sparkling new way. Animated adaptation of the children's book by Rachna Gilmore.
