Movie synopsis: Mahendra is a poor zipper repairman struggling to support his family. This is why the father sends his twelve-year-old son from the city to make some money, although child labour isn't officially legal. When little Siddharth doesn't come home at the arranged time, Mahendra follows his steps and gradually gathers information suggesting that his son has probably been kidnapped. The police are no help and all the other attempts to get the boy back fail as well, so the desperate father clings to the last shred of hope: the name of the place where the kidnapped children allegedly end up. The drama, which addresses child labour and social problems in India, was inspired by real events.
Awards and Nominations: South Asian IFF (2013) - Grand Jury Prize
