That Girl in Yellow Boots is about Ruth (Kalki Koechlin), who is searching for her father – a man she hardly knew but cannot forget.

Torn between several schisms, Mumbai becomes the backdrop for Ruth’s quest as she struggles to find her independence and space even as she is sucked deeper into the labyrinthine politics of the city’s underbelly.
