The film’s premise explores 4 new mothers who narrate first hand experiences with motherhood, while answering questions like how does it feel, why adopt and how has it changed them. They narrate incidents in an emotional way making it seem that they are speaking about human babies. The film climaxes with the question – Shall we meet your baby and it is then revealed that the mothers are new parents to Indie-dogs.
With this film, Voot & Pedigree drive the message that every dog deserves a home.
Pedigree has tied up with 25+ pet NGO’s to drive the cause of adoption for stray dogs. They have received over 1 lakh pledges on their official website in support of this initiative.
Speaking about the initiative, Akash Banerji, Business Head–Advertising Video Platform, VOOT, said, “We recently launched our VOOT Studio program, an industry first initiative that partners with brands around compelling storytelling & platform integrations, to drive their brand narrative for the new-age consumer.
