Siddharth
Filmfest 2014

Mahendra, a down on his luck chain-wallah (a destitute worker who fixes broken zippers on the street), pulls his twelve year old son Siddharth out of school and sends him to Delhi to illegally work in a factory in order to help support the family. When Siddharth fails to return home some weeks later, his anxious parents fear that he may have been taken by child-traffickers. Increasingly worried and desperate but with little money, few resources, and no connections, Mahendra embarks on a quest across India to find his son. In this heart wrenching tale that shows that parents' love for their child is beyond the bounds of country, culture, circumstances or economics, we join in the pursuit, hoping beyond hope that whatever has befallen Siddharth, he will return unharmed.
