Little Hearts’ plot, cast and crew
The movie revolves around farmers’ lives in Kerala’s high-altitude regions, while it also includes a romantic subplot between members of two families.

The movie also features Baburaj, Chemban Vinod Jose, Jaffer Idukki, Ramya Suvi, Renji Panicker and Maala Parvathi in key roles.
The script of the film is penned by Rajesh Pinnadan, who wrote Prithviraj Sukumaran’s Vilayath Buddha and Oru Thekkan Thallu Case. Little Hearts is said to include seven songs, composed by Kailas Menon. Cinematographer Luke Jose and editor Noufal Abdullah comprise the technical crew. The film is bankrolled by Sandra Thomas, who previously backed the survival thriller, Nalla Nilavulla Rathri.
