After sending away his 12 year-old son Siddharth for work, Mahendra (a chain-wallah who fixes broken zippers on the 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 little resources and no connections, he travels across India in pursuit, with the hope that whatever force arbitrarily took his child away will return him unharmed.
SIDDHARTH is written and directed by Richie Mehta (Amal, I’ll Follow You Down) and has been selected to over 20 major festivals around the world including TIFF, Venice, Dubia and Whistler, and more. The film was also short-listd for the Best Foreign Language film for the 2015 Golden Globe Awards.
