To chase her dream of going to school, a feisty paraplegic girl rebels against the traditions of her family members and other elders in her remote Himalayan village. Her spirit and determination are infectious, but in a village that is paved only by rough stones, a school that can only be reached by a river crossing, and a family with little money, how can Chuskit’s dreams ever come true?

About TSAFF:

Tasveer South Asian Film Festival (TSAFF) is the largest South Asian film festival in the world. Seeking to provide a counterpoint to the images and stories prevalent in mainstream South Asia and Bollywood, the festival encourages an atmosphere of thoughtful dialogue and creative inquiry, where filmmakers and audiences engage in lively discussions, forums, and other collaborative interactive formats. The festival highlights films with a focus on issues of human rights and social justice that concern South Asian countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and the various diasporas across the world.
