Director: Richie Mehta
Mahendra Saini is a Delhi street peddler and zipper repairman in dire straits. His business has stalled and, in an economic pinch, he recruits his 12-year old son Siddharth to earn a second income. When Siddharth goes missing, a byzantine search through the streets, social services, and civic bureaucracy begins. Winner of the awards for Best Film and Best Director at the South Asian International Film Festival, the film takes aim at a cruel economic reality.
