Based on the concept of the film Life in a Day, which collected footage from people all across the world on a single day in 2010, India In a Day allows for a deeper look at a fascinating and vibrant country. The film shows the ordinary and the extraordinary, from everyday frustrations like the struggle to find internet to creative geniuses working to make their mark on the country’s culture. We see sport, dancing, art, and much more.
