Experiencing Interruptions?

Tiger Won't Come today

One liner:
Oorja, who aspires to be like her copywriter father runs out of excuses that she usually makes for coming late to school only to find her father in the end, who helps her in more than one ways.

Oorja is a nine year old girl who has caught on the habit of lying. She comes up with ever new interesting excuses on coming late to school. One day she is stuck with her next idea and is suffering from a mental block.
On the other hand, a copywriter in his thirties is stuck on an idea for a plastic bottle, for which he has to create a TVC. He is proud to be the creative guy that he is but is still baffled by the thought of not being able to crack an idea for this product.
Both the characters, who happen to be related as father and daughter, help each other reach their solutions but in the end realize the futility of their efforts. Creativity is inspiring but what use are we putting it to?
