Kajro (Chatterjee of Brick Lane) and her mute husband Jethu (Siddiqui) eke out a tough existence in rural Rajasthan. Against the backdrop of state elections a circus comes to a nearby town, their children Panni and Ghumroo nag their parents to go. Kajro finally relents and unable to pay for transport sets off with her kids on foot across the desert to fulfil this small dream for them, but the journey will require sacrifices as the parents become puppets in the circus of local politics. Stunning cinematography captures the severe beauty of the Rajasthan countryside while the cast led by Chatterjee and Siddiqui (also see in Gangs of Wasseypur), deliver powerfully underplayed performances in this small film with a big heart. The film won the Audience Choice Award at the Busan Film Festival.

Followed by Q&A with Tannishtha Chatterjee.
