Siddharth

After sending away his twelve-year-old son Siddharth to work in a factory, Mahendra, who fixes broken zippers on Delhi’s streets, is relieved—his financial burdens will be alleviated. But when Siddharth fails to return home, Mahendra learns he may have been taken by child traffickers. With few resources and no connections, he travels across India in pursuit, a fervent sense of hope his only comfort. Inspired by true events, Siddharth is a simple yet profoundly resonant social-realist drama.
