A school talent search competition has matched two hearts - that of Melur, a Malay girl and an Indian boy, Mahesh. Melur, with her melodious voice, singing whilst playing the piano is one of the seven finalists of the Talentime competition. Mahesh is enthralled by Melur, but his traditional family objects to their relationship. Another finalist, Hafiz, fascinates people with his vocalist talent while playing the guitar, using music to cope with the pressures of dividing time between school and his mother, who has been hospitalised with brain tumour. A touching portrayal of love, family and everyday life, yet presented in a bittersweet way only the incomparable Yasmin Ahmad can.
