Siddharth Trailer (2013)

Trailer for Siddharth.

Canadian-born writer/director Richie Mehta returns to India (the setting for his celebrated debut, Amal) and applies an indie approach to a classic story of familial strife. At the age of 12, Siddharth is mainly interested in playing with his friends. But with his zipper repair business failing to support the family, Mehendra ignores his wife’s protests and sends his son away to work in a factory in Punjab, 200 miles north of Delhi.

Concern mounts when Siddarth fails to return home for Diwali. They are eventually told that he ran away two weeks prior, but conflicting stories indicate he may have been abducted. The family is too poor to have photos to give the police to aid in the search, and lack the resources or know-how to begin, but Mehendra sets out to find his son, lost among the billion citizens of India.
